A Certain Respect for Tradition is a celebration of jazz and, equally, of Mark Miller’s distinguished career as a writer. Drawing on more than 4000 articles, most published by The Globe and Mail, Miller has chosen 80 profiles and reviews according to the simplest and most subjective of criteria: these are pieces he likes about musicians whose work he admires from John Zorn and Jabbo Smith to Enrico Rava, Rosemary Clooney, Phil Minton, Dorothy Donegan and Cecil Taylor.
