Art Blakey has signed in black felt tip pen on the back. The autograph is HUGE.


One of the main proponents of hard bop, Art Blakey was perhaps the most influential and significant of the modern jazz drummers.

Beginning his career with pianist Mary Lou Williams in 1942, he graduated to the orchestras of Fletcher Henderson and BIlly Eckstine shortly after. In Eckstine's band he worked with future modern jazz legends like Charlie Parker, Dizzy Gillespie, and Miles Davis. In the 1950s Blakey formed the Jazz Messengers with Horace Silver. The Jazz Messengers were not only a stellar combo, but a long lasting one that featured and nurtured the early talents of such artists as Lee Morgan, Wayne Shorter, Freddie Hubbard, Johnny Griffin, Jackie McLean, Donald Byrd, Bobby Timmons, Cedar Walton, Benny Golson, Joanne Brackeen, Billy Harper, Valery Ponomarev, Bill Pierce, Branford Marsalis, James Williams, Freddie Hubbard, Keith Jarrett and Chuck Mangione.

One of the true geniuses of jazz.

Quotes:

"Louis Maistros has written a lyrical, complex, and brave novel that takes enormous risks and pulls them all off. He is a writer to watch and keep reading, a writer to cherish."
Peter Straub

"The Society of North American Magic Realists welcomes its newest, most dazzling member, Louis Maistros. His debut novel is a thing of wonder, unlike anything in our literature. It startles. It stuns. It stupefies. No novel since CONFEDERACY OF DUNCES has done such justice to New Orleans. If Franz Kafka had been able to write like Peter Straub, this might have been the result."
Donald Harington,
Winner of the Robert Penn Warren Award and the Oxford-American Lifetime Achievement Award.

“The Sound of Building Coffins is easily one of the finest and truest pieces of New Orleans fiction I've ever read.”
- Poppy Z. Brite

“One has to write with considerable authenticity to pull off a story steeped in magic and swamp water that examines race and class, death and rebirth, Haitian voodoo, and the beginnings of jazz in 1891 New Orleans...The plot is complex and magical, grounded in the history of the city, without being overly sentimental. There is a comfort with death as a part of life in this work that reveals deep feeling for the city and its past....Highly recommended for all fiction collections, especially where there is an interest in jazz."
- Library Journal
