Summary
This autobiography of the legendary jazz drummer "Papa" Jo Jones explores the life of one of the most influential rhythm musicians of the swing era, discussing Jones' long tenure with Count Basie's band and his enduring influence on the genre. The work is derived from a collection interview recordings made by jazz writer Albert Murray during the nineteen seventies and eighties and provides a deeply personal narrative of the life and times of a jazz musician in the twentieth century. The text has been edited into book form by Devlin, a doctoral student at Stony Brook University. Annotation ©2011 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
