Amazon.com description: Product Description: As jazz critic for "The New Yorker" magazine since 1957, & author of 15 books, Balliett has spent a lifetime listening to & writing about jazz. This monumental volume captures the full range of the jazz scene, from the first Newport Jazz Festival in 1954 to recent performances by a rising generation of musicians. Here are portraits of: Duke Ellington, Dizzy Gillespie, Django Reinhardt, Martha Raye, Buddy Rich, Charles Mingus, Louis Armstrong, Billie Holiday, Art Tatum, Bessie Smith, & Earl Hines -- and many, many more. His knowledge is encyclopedic, from swing & Dixieland, through boogie-woogie, bebop, & hard bop, to the newer forms of free jazz, abstract jazz, & atonal jazz, yet he has always written as if he were listening to jazz for the first time.
