4.0 out of 5 stars A jazzy Leeds, 25 Feb. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Oddly enough I noticed this novel inserted in a site where I was looking at old jazz photographs.
I read very few novels but it's reference to Leeds and jazz tempted me.
I felt affiliated very much with the era (I'm 71 yrs) and had attended regularly the Studio 20 and other places mentioned, and it brought back the feel and times of the years when I read Hank Janson and Mikey Spillane novels. So a nice comfy , moody read for an old town lad.

A continuance of Hyman's 'education' and thus another must for anyone seeking to tap on his vision and insight , not to speak of the frustration of his tutor. Just enjoy.

Just a great revealing story that I was so surprised to read. An added bonus for me was that I visited Harlem last year and knowing of the areas, street numbers and clubs mentioned ,put me there again

What a different and in depth opening section, in fact Sidney's family history . All that sets you up for what is a 'Real and honest' view and opinion, direct from Sidney of his life,, times , music and friends plus the not so friendly. Far more feeling and philosophy than most others offer . I never knew that he left home with Louis Armstrong, did you?

5.0 out of 5 stars The BIG EASY made easy., 12 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Have had this book some months now though saved this opinion until returning from New Orleans some ten days ago. This is a superb little book that I found up to date and `with it` as regards to info. An added plus for me was that I was staying on Chatres ST in the French Quarter and found that street mentioned, so I could check out instantly the items therein, the rest of the book is so easy to follow and informative that I found myself looking around at sites that it suggested and that had not previously been `on my list`. If you are off to New Orleans then get this book and stay in the French Quarter........................Bob

5.0 out of 5 stars The search for Nica the Rebellious Rothschild, 26 Oct. 2012

You'll never get any more real or better feel of Theo` Monk's mixed up life. Not a technical music journey, but the finest eye-opener and intriguing story, with the added access into the world of possibly one of the planets richest families at the time. You'll learn more of Thelonious Monk the man, and Nica his patron,plus other jazz greats and the complicated life they led. You will feel like a friend to them all.
