What the Critics Say

  • Audie Award Finalist, Narration by the Author or Authors, 2007

"She has done her studying from the inside: as one of the few working jazz musicians to write about the music with any frequency, she offers a perspective on the men and women who play jazz for a living that seldom finds its way into print." (New York Times)
"Marian McPartland is that rare combination, a first rank jazz musician who also can write about her music, its milieu and musicians....[She] writes with wit, acumen, and vivacity." (San Diego Union Tribune)

    "A Piece of Jazz history"

    The book was mostly a collection of pieces Marian wrote for various publications during the 60's and 70's with updates written within the last couple of years.
    She has some interesting insights to a rather small subset of all the jazz that was going on at the time.
    A lot of the pieces were about players of the day such as Benny Goodman, Dave Brubek, Paul Desmond etc. Her naration was somewhat of a problem, because in many places it was unclear if what she was reading were her opinions or quotes from the people she was writting about.
