The author has compiled a portrait of the famous jazz pianist, the players around him, the South Side Chicago scene, the rise of the big bands, and their collapse in this compelling and frank oral history. In his own words, Earl Hines recalls his phenomenal career. Other notables of the jazz world tell their impressions of Earl Hines, including Dizzy Gillespie, Billy Eckstine, Trummy Young and Budd Johnson.
