Through firsthand interviews, the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of The Good War recounts the lives of thirteen great jazz musicians and vocalists, including Joe Oliver, Bessie Smith, Duke Ellington, Billie Holiday, Louis Armstrong, Count Basie, and Charlie Parker, in a new edition of the 1957 classic. 13,000 first printing.

About the Author:

Studs Terkel is the author of ten books of oral history, including Working and the Pulitzer Prize-winning "The Good War." As a small boy, Terkel used to stand outside the Dreamland Ball Room in Chicago and listen to the spirited music of the New Orleans jazzmen who had come to town. He loved jazz then, and he still does.
