About this Book

These interviews, ranging from 1975 to 1981, represent two jazz generations: the old (Mercer Ellington, Gil Evans, Charles Mingus) and the new (Anthony Braxton, Larry Coryell, Henry Threadgill). The musicians discuss music making and can get a bit technical, but they tell colorful stories: Mose Allison on singing, Bob Brookmeyer on studio work, Ray Bryant on different kinds of audiences, Bill Evans on finding a musical identity. Each praises his mentors (no women are interviewed), and several mention racial prejudice. Each interview is preceded by a biographical sketch and followed by a list of recordings. Anyone interested in jazz will enjoy this entertaining and informative book.
