Illustrated; with discography.

Bushell's memoir vibrates with the excitement of being a part of the evolution of jazz. His career began as a teenager, playing in a circus band. In the 1920's , he played in rowdy Harlem cabarets and was a member of the Sam Wooding ensemble, one of the first black groups to tour Europe, Russia and South America. In the 1930's he performed with the big bands of Fletcher Henderson, Cab Calloway and Chick Webb. He participated in the Dixieland revival of the 1950's and '60s and in the modern experiments of Eric Dolphy and John Coltrane.
