“...This remarkable book is loaded with details on the lives of Tommy Ladnier and most of the people he played with. There are hundreds of illustrations, photos of people I’ve never even seen before and I’ve seen most of the photos of jazz musicians over the past fifty years. The depth of research is I believe unparalleled. God bless the two fanatics who have devoted so much of their time and energy to bring this work of love to fruition.” Frank Driggs, June 2009”
