Part 1 | Part 2

The music market in Japan--second only to the U.S. in terms of revenue--generates more than two-billion dollars in sales annually.

L'ultimo hipster. La vita e la musica di Mark Murphy

Read "L'ultimo hipster. La vita e la musica di Mark Murphy" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi

Non trovate accenni a Mark Murphy nelle più recenti storie del jazz, neanche il nome. Una lacuna che appare inspiegabile (a differenza di Frank Sinatra, Mel Tormè e Tony Bennett) che si giustifica solo col ritardo a collocare il cantante di Syracuse in una prospettiva storica.
