MEDIA REVIEWS
...what a wealth of information is inspired by this collection of meticulous recollection... * Crescendo & Jazz Music *
None of these figures will appear in any but the most detailed history of jazz, yet each has a unique story of his or her own journey in the business...an interesting volume... * CHOICE *
Exemplary book...This fine tribute to some of the forgotten men and women of jazz is invaluable as research and uplifting as a documentary. * JazzTimes Magazine *
...even the shortest entries are illuminating...Griffiths takes time to recommend various recordings his subjects appeared on, a valuable inclusion with players this obscure. If you enjoy oral histories, Hot Jazz is a good bet. * Cadence Magazine *
...writer David Griffiths' new book offers a fascinating look at the lives of some fine musicians. * South Wales Evening Post *
The author is superb with his attention to detail and ability to relate a story without interfering. He never intrudes in the subject's story yet presents it in a manner that is a joy to read. * Jazz Educators Journal *
These accounts provide a kind of reading that fills in the gaps; you get a sense of the warp and woof of the jazz life as lived by the journeyman musicians of the big band era. * The Mississippi Rag *
