First published in this format by Da Capo in 1972, all the articles have been sourced mainly from 60s magazines where stated. They are certainly interesting; they tend to be rather anecdotal and in a few instances have minor inaccuracies (a lot more research has been done since these were written) but there`s no doubting Stewart`s authority on most issues and he brings to bear a considerable knowledge of the jazz scene of the period through his personal relationships with bands, the music circuts and other musicians.
There is a separate section dealing with Ellington and his musicians, together with two short essays included as appendices contributed by other authors - one on Count Basie and the other an appreciation of Stewart himself.
A very good and entertaining volume in this series and a must-have for fans of the jazz of this era.
If you're a jazz fan, you just can't go wrong with this book! There's nothing like it out there.
