The best biography of any jazz musician that we have Bird Lives will stand for a After the End long time as a major source of information and illumination not only of the great musician with whom it deals but of the entire jazzife in this society Ralph GleasonInspired by great affection and dedication Bird Lives provides a vivid and accurate picture not only of the saxophonist compose.
