Buddy Collette has been a key figure in Amer. jazz since the early 1940s. He was a principal participant in the Central Ave. jazz scene of L.A., which rivals Harlem & New Orleans in its influence on the development of jazz. He worked closely with Charles Mingus & Eric Dolphy & went on to join the Chico Hamilton Quintet. He has led his own band for 30 years as well as writing, arranging & playing on film soundtracks. This  autobio. charts the developing jazz & social scene on the West Coast from the 1930s, through the Watts upheavals in the 1960s, to the present. Offers moving, first-hand portraits of his friends Charles Mingus, Eric Dolphy & Chico Hamilton, as well as personal accounts of Frank Sinatra, Paul Robeson & Charlie Parker. Illus.
