1.0 out of 5 stars VERY WEAK. Use Wikipedia instead for FAR more information, 9 July 2012
Don't waste your money. This is an exceptionally weak book. It takes about 1-2 mins to read completely so represents VERY poor value for money, and it offers very few insights into the upbringing of these two remakable athletes. About 20% of the space in the book is taken up with promoting other publications by the publisher. Buy a beer instead and read the free Wikipedia article rather than reading this rubbish.

5.0 out of 5 stars I was there!!!, 31 May 2007
This review is from: Brown Street (Audio CD)
Reviewed 21/06/2007.
Recorded during a fantastic week of music making at Joe's excellent "Birdland" in Vienna this is music at its best. It was the best music experience of my life . JZ is one of the great jazz composer's up there with Monk and Ellington. Add to the mix a great, great jazz big band, wonderful arrangements, stunning musicians including two WR greats, plus the incomparible JZ himself. Highlights for me include the heartfelt "A Remark you Made" with exquisite soloing from Joe (the spirit of Jaco was in the room),an incandescent "Fast City" with great solos from Paul Heller and JZ, and the powerful (and short) "March of the Lost Children" One major regret that "D flat waltz" didn't make it onto the CD was wild. Just how well WR material translates into big band was a revelation. There must be enough in the can for a follow-up 2 CD set. Please!!!!!

Joe died today....This CD is a fitting tribute to a great musician and a wonderful human being. RIP Joe....I wish I could hear what you are cooking up right now!!
