The world's leading authority on jazz and popular song, Benny Green was a prolific writer whose material spanned every aspect of the musical arts. As an insider who knew and worked with most of his subjects, Benny wrote from a matchless personal perspective. Now, for the first time, previously unpublished writing joins sleevenotes and live reviews, books and obituaries in a unique collection put together by his son, Dominic, following Benny Green's death in 1998. Included in SUCH SWEET THUNDER are discussions on the great songwriters and leading jazz singers; the role of jazz in musicals; the leading jazz musicians. From Ella Fitzgerald to Frank Sinatra, Irving Berlin to Rodgers and Hammerstein, SUCH SWEET THUNDER is essential reading for all music fans.
