“A part of the Jazz Masters Series, edited by Martin Williams, an insightful book which concentrates primarily on critical portraits of Parker, Gillespie, Powell and Roach but also gives lesser known figures like Tadd Dameron his due, as well as several significant post bop masters like Lee Konitz.”
