Leonard Feather's autobiography. After arriving in New York from London in 1935, Feather managed to distinguish himself as a producer, Composer, Pianist, and one of the music's most acute critics. He was one of the first to champion the innovations of bebop in the pages of 'Esquire' and 'Downbeat, also an ardent campaigner against racial barriers, and a friend to dozens of musicians. There are stories here about Feather's relationship with Louis Armstrong, Billie Holiday, Dinah Washington, Dizzy Gillespie, George Shearing, Joe Williams, Toshiko Akiyoshi, and many others. Filled with information about the recording busines and the tricky art of criticism.
