A collection of essays, biographical profiles, and critical analyses by one of the twentieth century's leading jazz writers includes commentary on the work of jazz entertainers, including Duke Ellington, Ella Fitzgerald, John Coltrane, Dizzy Gillespie, and Louis Armstrong, as well as assessment of the role of jazz in contemporary culture and its influence on modern music.


DAN MORGENSTERN was raised in Vienna and Copenhagen and came to the Unites States in 1947. He has served as editor of Metronome, Jazz, and Down Beat and has won six Grammy Awards for Best Album Notes. Since 1976 he has been the director of Rutgers University's Institute of Jazz Studies, one of the world's largest archival collection of jazz materials. He lives in New Jersey.


From liner notes and reviews to profiles and extended analyses, all of Dan Morgenstern's most significant work is included, unified by his poised, always generous voice and by the extraordinary depth of his knowledge. He writes with unmatched insight about the work of a broad spectrum of jazz entertainers, from the most iconic to the most esoteric, finding the essential aspects of the music and artistry in each of them. He analyzes the role of jazz in contemporary culture. And his appreciations of Duke Ellington, Dizzy Gillespie, John Coltrane, Ella Fitzgerald, and Louis Armstrong, among many others, transform the way the music of these artists is listened to and understood. The enduring brilliance of Dan Morgenstern's writing, its comprehensiveness and sheer impact, make this a benchmark in jazz literature. It is a must-have book for both new listeners and aficionados.
