Description by OLDIES.com:

Arguably America's most profound cultural contribution, jazz has evolved for over a hundred years since its birth in the ethnic gumbo of New Orleans at the dawn of the 20th century. This elegant volume presents a portrait gallery of 50 eminent musical legends, from Jelly Roll Morton, perhaps the inventor of the art form, to contemporary axman Joe Lovano, who contributes a foreword. Each figure is featured in handsome vintage photographs and a pithy, revealing biography.

Portraits include: Louis Armstrong * Sidney Bechet * Bix Beiderbecke * Duke Ellington * Fats Waller * Benny Goodman * Billie Holliday * Charlie Parker * Dizzy Gillespie * Thelonious Monk * Sarah Vaughn * Miles Davis * John Coltrane * Chet Baker * Wynton Marsalis * and many more!
