Media Reviews
'Bradbury retells the familiar story of the master-builder of jazz in a cool, elegant format ... with hitherto unpublished reminiscences from Armstrong's closest associates. The book's production aptly blends authentic folklore, evocative photographs and eye-witness accounts from each of Armstrong's seven decades. Every third or fourth page is embellished with succinct verbal sketches of virtually everything and everyone that Armstrong got involved with ...' -- Michael Horowitz The Sunday Times The best biography of Armstrong.' -- Steven Poole The Guardian 'it is a fine and well-researched introduction' -- George Melly Daily Mail
