Synopsis: For over a decade Bob Bernotas has been a frequent contributor to jazz- and music-related publications. In this new volume, his numerous articles about brass players and brass playing are collected, in revised and expanded form, for the first time. Musicians and serious jazz fans alike will enjoy and be enlightened by these profiles, conversations, and master classes with J.J. Johnson, Clark Terry, Benny Powell, Al Grey, Slide Hampton, Art Farmer, and two dozen other major brass artists. Illustrated by original photographs, these thirty-eight chapters offer an engaging and informative survey of the art and craft of jazz brass playing.
