'Red' Nichols, although celebrated in his own day, has long been a neglected figure in jazz history. Stephen Stroff has written a full analysis of Nichols' work, focusing on the jazz-oriented recordings made between 1925 and 1932. Discussions and listings cover jazz recordings made with other bands and jazz and popular recordings made under Nichols's name. Also included is a bibliography, selected discography, and index.
