Praise for this book:
"Great work on a great subject!
I enjoyed reading about James and everyone else.
Many details were unknown to me."
Olivier Bou, New Orleans jazz saxophonist
“... very well-written indeed.
It's quite amazing how it keeps interest high, even in passages that could easily degenerate into long lists of recordings and dates and facts.
I read it with great pleasure.”
David Daniels, conductor and author (and James's uncle)
