Description

New, expanded and updated edition of the best comprehensive survey of who's who of British jazz musicians. Over 900 biographies detail the work of musicians from every era of British jazz, ranging from those who played professionally before 1920 at the dawn of jazz in Britain, through to today's young stars. Much new information is revealed on the early careers of those who became famous and the chronological listing of events in each subject's life sheds new light on the development of jazz in Britain. Thousands of facts are presented and some popular myths dispelled. Veteran musicians have been traced, even those who have left the profession or emigrated have been included. The result is one of the most fully documented sources on the jazz musicians of any country outside the USA and a treasury of information covering every jazz style.
