    1. I really enjoyed reading this book. The author did a wonderful job of telling the history of this band. She kept my interest from beginning to end. I liked learning about each bandleader from the personal interviews of the band members. I like that the book has pictures to allow you to visualize the information you are reading. If you are interested in traditional jazz this book needs to be added to your personal library.
