Author Night with Gwen Thompkins

Description

This illustrated edition of A Life in Jazz brings Danny Barker’s autobiography back into print, accompanied by more than 100 images that bring his story to life. Journalist Gwen Thompkins, host of public radio’s Music Inside Out, reflects on Barker’s legacy in her introduction, and the complete discography and song catalog showcase the breadth of Barker’s work. Through his struggles, triumphs, escapades, and musings, A Life in Jazz reflects the freedom, complexity, and beauty of this thoroughly American, black music tradition.
