Product description

Review

"[An] absorbing study Chilton is not only a fine biographer bur also a fine trumpet player, and provides helpful commentary on Red's many recordings .this is a first-rate jazz biography, scrupulously researched and gracefully written."
-Jersey Jazz

"The book is enlivened by the author's piquant and most readable style .This is definitely a jazz volume that belongs in your personal library." The Mississippi Rag, February 2001

"this excellent book...includes nearly 20 fine photos, a selected discography by Brian Peerless and an index." - International Association of Jazz Record Collectors Journal--Sanford Lakoff

About the Author

John Chilton divides his time between being a professional jazz trumpeter and writing books on jazz. In 2000 he won the British Jazz Award for Writer of the Year. His books include Billie's Blues (on Billie Holiday), The Wizard of Jazz (on Sidney Bechet), and Let the Good Times Roll (on Louis Jordan). Both his Who's Who of Jazz (Storyville to Swing Street) and his Who's Who of British Jazz have been hailed as the best reference works of their kind. Down Beat magazine calls Chilton ""a master of the craft of research.
