A comprehensive study, this book provides biographical and discographical information on a brilliant and talented musician who died from tuberculosis at the age of twenty-six. Through an analysis of his recorded legacy, Leif Bo Petersen and Theo Rehak offer new perspectives on Navarro's role in the history and emergence of bebop. Their information is based on interviews with family members, musicians and others in the music business, contemporary newspaper and magazine articles, and the music itself. The book features images, musical examples, and depictions of Navarro's recordings, several appendixes, lists of Navarro's recordings and compositions, and a chronological overview of Navarro's performances, recording sessions, and engagements.
