About the Author

A free-lance jazz critic, David H. Rosenthal was also a poet, literary critic, journalist, and translator of Catalan and Portuguese literature. His articles on music have appeared in Down Beat, JazzTimes, Keyboard, the Village Voice, and other publications.


"The author should be praised for breaking new ground with his Hill, Jones, Brooks, Hope, Clark, Harris, Kelly, Morgan, Jordan, Golson, and Turrentine biographies....Should be greatly appreciated as the beginning of a coming to terms with this vibrant period in jazz history....We are all indebted to Rosenthal for putting into motion what should be a continuing debate about jazz of this period."--American Book Review "An original and compelling assessment."--Kirkus Reviews "A solid, insightful study of one of the most misunderstood of jazz movements."--Harvey Pekar "A very fine overview of the period from 1955-1965, especially as it refers to my personal involvement in the music of the time."--Jackie McLean "Covers one of the most vital ten years in jazz, an era that is still echoing through contemporary music of many styles in its influence. David Rosenthal vividly and coherently explains the musical developments of this unified, yet diverse time in jazz, beautifully bringing in vital contemporaneous information on the socio-cultural circles within and immediately surrounding jazz. His ability to cover all bases without weighing the reader down in tangents and minutia is admirable."--Michael Cuscuna, Mosaic Records "An original and compelling assessment."--Kirkus Reviews
