I picked this up at the St. Vital Library book sale planning on releasing it during the Jazz Winnipeg Festival. It was written in 1976 so it is certainly not current but as a record of the 40s, 50s and 60s in jazz it is a great book. Nat Hentoff knew all the great performers he writes about: Duke Ellington, Billie Holiday, Louis Armstrong, Miles Davis, Charlie Parker, John Coltrane and more. And his style is almost poetic. Makes me wish I lived in New York when the jazz scene was so vibrant. ( )
