"Remarkable book ... Astonishingly successful .... It tells the story of white jazz from Tom Brown's Ragtime Band to the big bands with meticulously researched detail and the awareness you would expect from such a noted cornettist and Bixophile. Lost Chords pretty much accomplishes the near impossible task of being simultaneously academic and popular." -- The Jazz Rag
