pdf epub fb2 djvu



With more than 500 pictures, and extensive entries on more than 350 orchestras, this complete coverage of black and white bands—from the almost-forgotten Basie, Ellington, Miller, Shaw, and Dorsey—will prompt memories and establish important facts about a glorious era of jazz and popular music. Forewords by Les Brown and Harry James and an index with more than 6,000 names bracket a book that should be part of any music library.
