Jazz Talking by Max Jones
Book DescriptionMax Jones, known affectionately as "the Boswell of bebop" (Time Out), was famed in England for nearly four decades of insightful, ardent writing on jazz. With this luminous collection of interviews, his work will at last be widely accessible to American readers. Here are the voices of jazz--Coleman Hawkins, Johnny Hodges, Billie Holiday, and Mary Lou Williams, to name but a few--in conversation with Jones, who could turn a casual chat into an indelible portrait and who gives American readers a view of these musicians they have never had before.
