About the Author

Guthrie P. Ramsey, Jr., is the Edmund J. and Louise W. Kahn Term Professor of Music and Africana Studies at the University of Pennsylvania and author of the prize-winning Race Music: Black Cultures from Bebop to Hip-Hop (UC Press).


"Ramsey writes with a musician's ear... Full of beauty and that edgy logic." -- John Mole The Times Literary Supplement "An important, thoughtful work for those wishing to probe beyond cliches." DownBeat "Equal parts biography, historiography, and music analysis, Ramsey's brilliant study represents a much-needed examination of one of jazz's most influential pianists and artists." Notes
