Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Earl Hines suddenly seems the "Forgotten One" beside the famous Louis Armstrong. But is this "fair"? Good question. Hines' duet with Armstrong, "Weatherbird", is always sited as being among the greatest jazz records ever made and Hines was in fact the music Director of Armstrong's Chicago band. Pianist Erroll Garner said, "When you talk about greatness, you talk about Art Tatum and Earl Hines". Count Basie said Hines was,"The greatest piano player in the world". [See Earl Hines on Wiki]

This book is basically a 130 page interview with Hines with interviews about him and his times with other musicians he played with, Dizzie Gillespie etc. It also has a complete and detailed 17 page year-by-year chronology of Hines' life and endless photos.
