    Default Jazz books, publications and literature

    I thought I'd start a thread on a few books on Interesting people
    Around the jazz genre over the years.
    The first I'd like to recommend is
    the Art Pepper autobiography "straight life"

    https://www.amazon.co.uk/Straight-Li.../dp/1841950645



    It's an incredible story of a creative soul, drugs, family, the music business
    Prison and much more.

    A cracking read!

    It would help if you could list the publisher and the ISBN for these, and future, recommendations.

    Thanks

    Excellent thread. I love both the Val Wilmer and Art Pepper's autobiography... Will have to seek out the book on Dr John.

    One of the finest books about jazz that I know of is Geoff Dyer's But Beautiful
    Publisher: Canongate Books; Main edition (10 May 2012)
    ISBN-10: 0857864025
    ISBN-13: 978-0857864024

    - lightly fictionalised portraits of Monk, Mingus, Chet Baker, Art Pepper and others. Quite brilliantly done - funny and moving and seems to get inside the music in unexpected ways.

    Yes indeed who doesn’t love the Blue Note cover art.
    I have both volumes of those, lovely things (wish they’d done a hard back edition)
