"This book takes you closer to Jazz Street, brings you closer to its people, its ever-changing moods, its vital, powerful music. Jazz Street has no geographical identity For the musician, it's his home, his job, his entire world. For the listener, it's wherever he hears teh wild weird sad joyful stomping somber brassy quiet hot cool beautiful sounds of jazz."--from the jacket copy (clearly written before Wynton Marsalis' ongoing 'museumification' of jazz)
