Review:

"All collectors will welcome the meticulous documentation of recording dates, titles, and personnel . . . a valuable addition to jazz criticism, discography and . . . historiography."—Popular Music

"The Mona Lisa of its genre. To the initiate and novice alike, it provides an enlightened and enlightening overview of the music it surveys. . . . One looks forward to a sequel of like strengths. . . . this book stands on its own as one of the handful in the literature of jazz that can truly be called essential."—Annual Review of Jazz Studies

"An immense body of information is packed into the volume, the writing is lucid, literate, and frequently a joy to read, and the discussion builds on itself . . . nothing approaching the compass, balance, and erudition of this volume has been produced this side of the [Atlantic] ocean."—Downbeat
