Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Library Journal
A wide-ranging, well-edited, and annotated collection of 36 articles and interviews make up this collection devoted to tenor saxophonist Young, one of the most important jazz performers of the 1930s through the 1950s. Editor Porter, himself an expert on Young, divides the articles into biographical essays, interviews with the saxophonist, and performance style analyses. The breadth of this volume should make it useful to the jazz fan or general reader. Essential for any music library and certainly a useful volume for general collections.-- James E. Perone, Canisius Coll., Buffalo, N.Y.
