SOLD!<br>ORRIN KEEPNEWS!<BR>Signed First Edition of "The View From Within:<BR>Jazz Writings 1948-1987" From the Founder of RIverside and Milestone

Sorry, this item SOLD!

"The View from Within; Jazz Writings 1948-1987", first edition, 1988.

Signed and inscribed by Keepnews in August 1988;

"To Frank Noonan/ whose friendship/and helpfulness have/made a lot of /this possible./Orrin Keepnews"

I don't know who Frank Noonan is, but he has obviously played wome role in Keepnews' music career judging from the inscription. If anyone has any information about Mr. Noonan I would be most appreciative.

Orrin Keepnews' Riverside label was probably the only great independant label in history to produce consistently excellent recordings in the fields of traditional jazz, modern jazz blues and folk all at the same time. His Milestone label was also known for its excellence in the field of modern jazz.

Keepnews' accounts of his experiences in the jazz field are full of wit and wisdom. His perspective as an insider to some of the great jazz recordings of our time is illuminating.

The condition of the book and the dust jacket are excellent.

The Sound of Building Coffins
by Louis Maistros

Signed copies available exclusively on the net here at Louie’s Juke Joint, just click this link to order!


"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
