Jazz in revolution


Jazz in revolution
One of the most acclaimed British jazz musicians of all time, John Dankworth worked with and befriended many of the all time greats, including Ella Fitzgerald, Chick Corea, Benny Goodman, and Nat "King" Cole. A performer, composer, arranger, and conductor, Dankworth still plays to packed audiences around the world, and his life has spanned virtually the entire history of jazz. Jazz in Revolution is his story—a flood of memory, anecdote, and encounter. With total candor, Dankworth's reminiscences range from the purchase of his first, somewhat suspect, clarinet to his triumphant American concerts with his wife, Dame Cleo Laine. A delightful memoir and a fascinating insight into the talented figures who left an indelible mark on jazz's first century.
