But Beautiful - A Book About Jazz


227 pages
North Point Press

In eight poetically charged vignettes, Geoff Dyer skillfully evokes the music and the men who shaped modern jazz. Drawing on photos, anecdotes, and the way he hears the music, Dyer imaginatively reconstructs scenes from the embattled lives of some of the giants of jazz-Lester Young, Charles Mingus, Thelonious Monk, Ben Webster, Chet Baker, Bud Powell, Art Pepper, Duke Ellington, and Harry Carney.
