He shows how Jack Benny revolutionized comedy assesses the hardboiled fiction of James M.Cain, Raymond Chandler, and Elmore Leonard recounts how he uncovered the true birthdate of Louis Armstrong chats with Clint Eastwood about Charlie Parker. And, of course, he writes with authority on the great jazz musicians. This provocative and entertaining collection reveals why Gary Giddins has become one of the most influential critics of his generation.
