5.0 out of 5 stars Piketty is right on the money!, 1 May 2014
The problem with "reviews" by some (Clayton, Hofffman et al) is that they just want to parade their ego. Do we really want to have "essays" by these people? No...not interested, find a journal to publish your views (some hope). Just buy this book and read it rather than sub-A level mini essays. The hype is right for once.

5.0 out of 5 stars Virgin (American) Beauty, 13 July 2012
This review is from: Virgin Beauty (Audio CD)
Had this when it first came out...took years to get a cd version. Most of what the other reviewers say is true. It is accessible but still outstanding jazz. Who, with open ears could not enjoy this? I have got lots of friends into this jazz via this album. But, one reviewer shows how elitist and completely stupid some jazz "aficionados" really are...Jerry Garcia adds a lot by understated brilliant playing. As Ornette himself said at the time of release, he was amazed by Jerry's skill, intuitive playing (yeah...that is what jazz is all about deaf lugs!) and "ear". So, if you are a TRUE jazz, TRUE Dead fan or are just plain open to great music then buy this album.
