    1. An exceptional collection of mini biographies and stories of jazz musicians told by one of my favorite jazz biographers. A fun read. Stories were a perfect length and I like how some stretched outside the typical jazz story. I'd recommend this to anyone who likes to learn about mid-century American history via tales of the very American jazz musicians to helped define the genre.
