it was amazing

Best Jazz book ever. Dyer brings a novelist's skill to this book which describes the lives and music of a dozen greatest jazz musicians America ever produced. We don't find out about Monk, we become Monk, we live his life, feel his tone. Devastating.

Steve I know so little about Jazz. This sounds like a good entry point.
