        This Is: Essays on Jazz by Aaron Gilbreath

        This Is: Essays on Jazz by Aaron Gilbreath

        With an ear for the overlooked, Aaron Gilbreath chronicles the forgotten corners of the mid-century jazz scene. Shadowing the greats, from Sonny Clark to John Coltrane, Gilbreath traces the tragedy of saxophonist Hank Mobley, unearths the story of lost pianist Jutta Hipp, and pauses on the meaning of heroin for trumpeter Lee Morgan. He also revisits a few standards, like The Connection, an influential film with its own take on drugs and sobriety; the ten-year evolution of Miles Davis' "So What"; and the impact of record labels' vault archives. THIS IS: ESSAYS ON JAZZ celebrates the joy, genius and struggle of jazz, in essays both intimate and deeply researched.
