Editorial Reviews

"This is a book worth reading for its exhaustive research and the provocative ideas contained in its thesis." - The New York City Jazz Record "Engaging and lucidly written, without a trace of academese, it's a fascinating perspective from which to view this sequence of events, an all-too-uncommon stepping to the side and coming at an issue from a new angle.
