Review quote

"She has done her studying from the inside: as one of the few working jazz musicians to write about the music with any frequency, she offers a perspective on the men and women who play jazz for a living that seldom finds its way into print." New York Times "I wonder if Marian McPartland fully realizes what an elegant prose stylist she is. But then, it's only natural that her choices with language should be no less sensitive or discriminating than those she makes at the keyboard. In the truest sense these word portraits are McPartland compositions and remain among my most treasured music reading. What a joy to have an expanded and updated edition." Richard M. Sudhalter, author of Stardust Melody: The Life and Music of Hoagy Carmichael "Marian McPartland has always been one of my favorite pianists, and this book shows that she is every bit as good a writer as she is a musician."
