About this Item

Vintage (1945) trade paperback original; grades good due to fairly heavy cover wear (chips, small holes & tears, a few stains) - mostly to edges & corners; a few page corners bumped & dog-eared; a few record titles in the discography have been crossed out in pencil (still readable, previous owner's way of noting which ones he owned). Fabulous 82 page study of the role of the trumpet & the trumpeter in jazz music. Devotes much attention to Louis Armstrong, but in chapters covering "The New Orleans Trumpeters", "Small Group Trumpeters" and "great", "lesser" and "swing" soloists of "The Era of The Big Band", manages to include Gillespie, Eldridge, Clarence Brereton, Sharkey Bonano, Ovie Alston, Luis Metcalfe, John Nesbit, Paul Webster, Rex Stewart, Henry Allen, Sy Oliver, Ward Pinkett, Shirley Clay & 50 or so others.
