Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
In this autobiography/biography, jazz great Hodes retells in brief stories his experiences in the jazz worlds of Chicago and New York from the 1920s to the 1950s. Hansen (English, Univ. of Illinois) functions as editor and commentator, supplying connective passages as needed. There is much to tell. Not only a renowned blues pianist, Hodes finds time to be a radio broadcaster, television series host, and magazine editor. The book duplicates some areas covered in an earlier Hodes-Hansen collaboration, Selections from the Gutter (Univ. of California Pr., 1977), but Hodes is a natural storyteller, making this a lively and amusing oral history of jazz. Recommended for libraries with large music collections.-- Deborah Richey, California State Univ.-Fullerton Lib.
