Oh, Jess



Price: 9.50£

The first authorised and authoritative interviw biography in book form extolling the gratness of pianist Jess Stacy, arguably the swingiest and most subtle player of this chosen instrument in the history of jazz, but also a creative talent rarely paid the proper tribute by the general listener and by floodlight dazzled writers in a hurry. For the general reader, the book is biographical literature of rare glow. For the jazz afficionado, it has both a filmography and a complete discography with details of what, where and with whom Jess Stacy has played in front of recording mikes between 1926 and 1977. Soft cover A5, illustrated, 224 pages
