"Recommended." --Choice

"Blue Rhythm Fantasy is a wonderfully enlightening experience. . . .A splendidly-documented exploration of an artist and his musical world that will both answer and raise many questions. "--Jazz Lives
The unsung artists and business people who were the backbone and lifeblood of the popular music business in NYC in the 1930s and '40s are finally the heroes in this excellent and extremely well-researched book. This exciting new teaching tool brings to the fore those crucial musicians who kept all types of popular entertainment flowing by creatively and professionally combining such diverse job titles as composer, arranger, orchestrator, and copyist.--Benjamin Bierman, author of Listening to Jazz

"A fascinating study of an overlooked aspect of the musical world that allows us to view artistic development with a greater understanding of other forces: economic, social, racial, and historical."--ARSC Journal

"Wriggle's work is well-researched, well-structured, and gives a great overview of the Swing Era career of Chappie Willet, which is further complemented by a thorough examination of his stylistic 'idiolect.'"--Journal of the International Association for the Study of Popular Music

"Meticulously researched and elegantly written." --Music References Services Quarterly
