Nat Hentoff has lived through much of jazz's history and has known many of its most important figures, often as friend and confidant. He has also been a tireless expounder of jazz's inside history, including forgotten sidemen and women. This volume includes short essays, long interviews, and personal recollections. From Duke Ellington and Louis Armstrong to Ornette Coleman and the long-neglected women in jazz, Hentoff brings the greats to life and traces their art to gospel, blues, and many other forms of American music, while reflecting his keen, cosmopolitan thinking on a wide range of issues.
