A propos de cet article

Language: English . Brand New Book. George Pee Wee Erwin devoted a lifetime to American music. During his long and distinguished career as a professional trumpet player he was in constant demand by the foremost bandleaders and conductors in radio, the movies, recordings, TV, and stage shows, and was active in every phase of the music business. For a time he led his own big band, and later he fronted all-star Dixieland groups at the world-famous Greenwich Village night spot, Nick s, the Metropole, and other jazz clubs around the country. Pee Wee s wide experience, coupled with his fantastic gift for recall, gives insight into the musical history he helped create. A great deal has been written, much of it second-hand, about the period between the World Wars when American music was developing, but Pee Wee s narrative lets us relive the time through the vivid recollections of a man who entered the scene at an early age and remained an active participant.

For a time he led his own big band, and later he fronted all-star Dixieland groups at the world-famous Greenwich Village night spot, Nick's, the Metropole, and other jazz clubs around the country. Pee Wee's wide experience, coupled with his fantastic gift for recall, gives insight into the musical history he helped create. A great deal has been written, much of it second-hand, about the period between the World Wars when American music was developing, but Pee Wee's narrative lets us relive the time through the vivid recollections of a man who entered the scene at an early age and remained an active participant.

Critique:

...the very best in journalism. Shellac Stack Presented with friendly care...offers much to whet and warrant a jazz-buff's interest. JazzTimes Magazine Beyond any doubt, the best book ever put together on a musician's life with the big bands is just out. Courier-News [Gannett, Bridgewater, Nj] ...the reader gets an excellent overview of the music business...well-written... Cadence Magazine ...a great book by one of the stars of the swing era who continued to be a leading light in the New York traditional jazz scene... Joslin's Jazz Journal Reading this incredibly lucid and total -recall account is to marvel and be thankful that it was obtained over months of interviewing before all too soon the shadows fell... Needle Time ...loaded with valuable historical data which will be of interest to a wide segment of collectors. The IAJRC Journal ...a remarkable job... Jazz Journal International ...valuable...this biography of a truly-loved jazz warrior is simply essential... Association Of British Jazz Musicians Bulletin ...a truly eclectic overview of the music business during this period. CHOICE
