Review:

'A fitting testament to one of the most important imprints in jazz ' - Record Collector 'Rare and unseen material captured for an in-depth book tracing the history of the legendary jazz label ' - Music Week 'I was sooooo inspired just holding the book and turning the pages that I decided to pick a couple of Verve tracks to play ... I'll never stop reading this instantly historical and beautifully written book ' - Bruce Johnston, The Beach Boys 'Turns the story of a record label into a gloriously lively history of jazz; the book's design almost makes you hear the music as you read ' - Peter Conrad, Observer (Books of the Year) 'Lavish and lovingly assembled ... A beautiful object' - Mojo 'Photographs, tour posters, album sleeves and ephemera is eye-poppingly beautiful' - Daily Telegraph
