Blue Note Records: The Biography
Blue Note Records: The Biography is going to become a classic reference work that belongs on the shelf of every serious jazz connoisseur and scholar. Until it ages sufficiently to attain that status, I heartily recommend it to any jazz fan who craves another glimpse into that heady firmament of a time when jazz was not merely an interesting form of music but a string of unforgettable creative moments and experiences never quite to be relived in its four dimensions of real time and space (and the Coltrane-ian fifth dimension of the spirit), but thankfully saved in part on tape and disk for us to savor again and again in our mind’s ear.
