From the Back Cover:

A treasury of remarkable writing, remarkable talking and remarkable lives, drawn together by one of the country’s sharpest wits.

Jazz is undeniably the liveliest, most mysterious, warmest, most unpredictable music to be born this century – it is also the most elusive. No truly great jazz novel, play or even film has ever been produced, but sometimes the spirit of jazz sticks to the pages of an autobiography, a casual sleeve note or even a radio talk. It is this priceless essence that Miles Kington has captured in 'The Jazz Anthology'.

“This is a splendid assembly of jazz arcana. They have one thing in common: they’re very well-written. It would be possible to make all sorts of other anthologies about jazz, but not, I think, a better one”
MARTIN GAYFORD, 'Sunday Telegraph'

“A labour of love ... very interesting and useful”
CITY LIMITS

“Selections of genuine value and insight”
THE WIRE

“A great dipping-into book which I have found very difficult to dip out of again, and that’s the real test”
DAVE GELLY, 'Jazz Express'
