jaw-droppingly candid photos of jazz immortals....,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Three Wishes: An Intimate Look at Jazz Greats (Paperback)
for the admission price this is an outstanding purchase. they could have made it twice the size and bound it in hardback and charged triple.....and i still would have bought it! that's how good this book is; astonishing relaxed casual pictures of jazz heroes, unforced, unpretentious and un-posey. and that's not to mention the insight gleaned from their answers to the Baroness's simple question: if you had three wishes to be granted now, what would they be? mostly light-hearted answers here, brief and un-expounded upon, mirroring the subjects' obvious sense of ease in the company of one of their greatest champions, but that is not to say they lack profundity. you also learn a little about the somewhat mysterious Baroness from some of the answers, for example, that Art Blakey was in love with her, although the humour in his proposition suggests he knows he hasn't a chance. wonderful work, precious even, i would venture, and highly recommended. 5 unreserved stars!
