Sadly, I dumped the sample that I had downloaded.
Dreadfully and unnecessarily intellectual. It is written with an openly hi- brow approach, the very opposite of what the era of that music was. It left me very annoyed and disappointed. I wanted to send a NASA pass to the author to re-join this planet.
Avoid this elitist tome’ without feeling any guilt. And shame on his Editors for not guiding the writer to be more accessible to general public. I am a Jazz radio presenter; another fellow jazz enthusiast has deleted the purchased book after only a chapter or so, as well.
