[solid clean copy, very shallow dent at top of front cover, top page edges very slightly darkened; jacket spine faded, faint overall soiling, minor chipping/edgewear (mostly along top edge) with a few itsy-bitsy tears]. The author of "The Last Time I Saw Paris" and numerous other books, described in the jacket copy as a "critic, reporter, interviewer, lecturer, dilettante and accomplished performer [who] has lived with music all his life," here presents his informal and highly personal survey of American musical history, comprised of "thumbnail sketches, caricatures and full-scale portraits of men and women of American music who appeal to his inquisitive fancy."
