Giants of Jazz
Jul 24, 2011
Short biographies of the great jazz musicians. The book in general has a few too many hyperboles. Terkel focuses on the personalities of these "giants" and how they changed what was accepted as jazz so that the next "giant" could do his/her cool thing. There are some major jazz musicians that I feel were looked over (such as Miles Davis) but over-all a quick, informative overview of the "giants of jazz".
