Format: Paperback
Al Young has given us a wonderful look at the world of jazz in "Things Ain't What They Used To Be." He writes basically about jazz artists as real people & has a wonderful ear for music.
Where he goes wrong, in my opinion, is that he pays too much attention to Ellington & Strayhorn. That is why I am giving him 4 stars instead of 5.
But if you love jazz, this is the book for you.....recommended
