This advert is located in and around Broadstone, London

Advert Description

Oxfam Shop Broadstone Over a ten-year period, Ira Gitler interviewed more than fifty of the major figures in jazz history to preserve for posterity their recollections of how jazz moved from the big band era in the late 1930s and 1940s into the modern jazz period. The musicians interviewed recreate their own experiences and also evoke the legendary figures of bop who were especially influential in its development but were rarely or never recorded, people like Clyde Hart and Freddie Webster. Illustrated with photographs. Good condition for a second-hand book: light wear to covers and spine, mainly to edges with creasing to front cover bottom corner, sticker residue to rear cover; light tanning to page edges, small creases to some page corners, text and illustrations remain clear throughout.
