     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)
