'A fitting testament to one of the most important imprints in jazz' - Record Collector
'Lavishly illustrated ... Granz, who died in 2001, would be proud' - The Times Literary Supplement
'The assemblage of glorious archive photographs, tour posters, album sleeves and ephemera is eye-poppingly beautiful' - Daily Telegraph
'I was sooooo inspired just holding the book and turning the pages that I decided to pick a couple of Verve tracks to play ... I'll never stop reading this instantly historical and beautifully written book' - Bruce Johnston, The Beach Boys
'Rare and unseen material captured for an in-depth book tracing the history of the legendary jazz label' - Music Week
'Lavish. Amongst the 1,000 plus rare, famous and unseen photographs in this lovingly assembled history are images more profound than any other music-related output in 2013 ... Designed to foreground the painterly lines of Verve's peerless cover artist, David Stone Martin, [this book] is a beautiful object, bringing together high-quality reproductions of album sleeves, master tapes, telegrams, contracts, tour photos and dreamy 8 x 10's of everyone from Herbie Hancock to Blossom Dearie' - Mojo
'Loaded with images, album covers and profiles of artists, producers and album-cover illustrators. Every essay by Havers includes information you may not have known ... A ton of colour, and all photos are dramatic and probably not familiar ' - JazzWax
