Congratulations to the authors for bringing this fine collection of interviews together under one cover! The dialog sparkles, and each of these 21 jazz women interviews reveals the uniqueness of the woman being interviewed.
Among the many brilliant lady jazz artists are found Regina Carter, Shirley Horn, Diana Krall, Abbey Lincoln, Maria Schneider, Marian McPartland, and Cassandra Wilson. A complete index with suggestions for further reading is included, along with a CD sampler.
This is a good bet for the Public Library, and after you get your own copy, please have your Librarian get a copy for its jazz reading patrons! Well-crafted, this book shines with insights into the world of the major female jazz performers. Highly recommended.Complete with a CD sampler, this book gives a revealing look at 21 jazz women through interview conversations! Topnotch reading in every way!
