Nica's granddaughter's introduction perfectly conveys the breadth of her grandmother's warmth and generosity. This book of candid photos of Nica's jazz friends is the perfect accompaniment to Thelonious Monk The Life and Time of an American Original. My favorites are of Monk, including a great shot of Monk with Coleman Hawkins revealing the deep affection between the two. Favorite wish is from Dizzy Gillespie: "A world where you don't need a passport."
