Summary
With an ear for the overlooked, Aaron Gilbreath chronicles the forgotten corners of the mid-century jazz scene. Shadowing the greats, from Sonny Clark to John Coltrane, Gilbreath traces the tragedy of saxophonist Hank Mobley, unearths the story of lost pianist Jutta Hipp, and pauses on the meaning of heroin for trumpeter Lee Morgan. He also revisits a few standards, like The Connection, an influential film with its own take on drugs and sobriety; the ten-year evolution of Miles Davis' So What ; and the impact of record labels' vault archives. This Is: Essays on Jazz celebrates the joy, genius and struggle of jazz, in essays both intimate and deeply researched
Summary
Jazz history for aficionados and the rest of us. An intimate and expert look at the mid-century scene, focusing on the lost talents that stood beside the era's giants. Gilbreath takes on a few standard assumptions, too, from the impact of heroin to the central myths of Miles Davis
