Dick Cary (1916 - 1994)was a pianist, trumpeter, alto-horn player, composer and arranger, who was pianist in the Louis Armstrong All Stars, and a multi-instrumentalist member and chief arranger for trumpeter Bobby Hackett's jazz band. He also kept a highly literate series of detailed diaries covering a span of over 60 years of a life in jazz. In "Strictly A Musician", Derek Coller reveals a vivid picture of a working jazz musician by combining the details of Cary's daily life with Cary's own personal thoughts as articulated in his diaries. The portrait is highlighted by hundreds of heretofore unknown details about an important era in jazz.
