Commentaire Muggsy Spanier was smitten by the jazz he heard as a young man in his home town of Chicago. Inspired by the likes of Louis Armstrong, Freddie Keppard and King Oliver, he was soon to become the star cornet player in many of the bands which played in the city's clubs and ballrooms. He toured with Ted Lewis and Ben Pollock before a near-fatal illness in 1938 but came back to the scene with his Ragtime Band and its classic 1939 recordings. Thereafter, he led a big band before working with Bob Crosby and then continuing as a leader, including long residencies in San Francisco. This book, by a British writer, details Spanier's life and career. Some of it is in the words of his wife plus those of the many musicians who were colleagues. Thus there is much insight into the man's character and personality, as well as his dedication to jazz as he thought it should be played. In addition, there is a full discography of his recorded work covering forty years from 1924. + 1 CD
