Review:

"To the extent that the book leaves us wanting more, and opens up questions which still seem important eough to call out for answers, it is a success. It is certainly required reading for anyone interested both in jazz and contemporary critical theory.."
-William Echard, "Topia
..."this kind of work is badly needed in jazz studies. Heble's book raises crucial issues and...the work should certainly be read by anyone interested in jazz as a cultural practice.."
-William Echard, "Topia
""Landing on the Wrong Note...[introduces] some fascinating new ways of looking at jazz history and articulating a jazz-informed criticism.."
-Hua Hsu, "The Wire
"Heble approaches the idea of 'dissonance', or non-agreement, as a symptom of the modern condition and its discipline-minded political practices. Take that, Wynton Marsalis!."
-Hua Hsu, "The Wire
"Heble gets off on the good foot, and many of "Landing's best moments tread this sticky cultural line of right/wrong.."
-Hua Hsu, "The Wire
