Renowned for forty years of writing about jazz and for almost that long a span as a record producer, Orrin Keepnews has won three Grammy Awards, established two legendary jazz labels, and has both worked in the studio with and written about such jazz giants as Cannonball Adderley, Bill Evans, Thelonious Monk, and McCoy Tyner.
The View from Within brings together a wide range of Keepnews' writings, including reviews and commentary for The Record Changer, Down Beat, and other magazines; album notes; essays; and discerning appreciations of such artists as Monk, Evans, Wes Montgomery, and Johnny Griffin. As he traces his own transformation from a young traditionalist into one of the leading forces in modern jazz, Keepnews also presents a vivid portrait of jazz in the years since the war.
