Barney, Bradley and Max : Sixteen Portraits in Jazz
In this follow up to "American Musicians and American Singers", a knowledgeable writer on jazz offers 16 profiles - seven of which have never appeared in book form before. Beginning with a profile of jazz fan Jean Bach, who calls herself the first jazz groupie, the book takes the reader through the whole world of jazz. We meet club owners Max Gordon, Barney Josephson and Bradley Cunningham and are introduced to such virtuoso musicians as Benny Goodman and Charlie "Bird" Parker. Balliett fans and jazz aficionados will welcome this collection.
