Editorial Reviews

Review

“All in all this is an immensely entertaining book, although you have to make an effort to seperate fact from fiction…it’s one of the few books I have picked up and found difficult to put down again. Thouroughly recommended.”
-Eddie Cook, Jazz Journal Interantional

“Barker was one of the first African-Americans to record recollections of [New Orleans’] musical and social heritage. Much of it involved his own family; his relations had first-hand knowledge of legendary figures like Buddy Bolden, the cornettist reckoned to be the key figure in the emergence of jazz.”
-The Economist

“…it is the story and the manner in which it is told that makes this book an entertaining read.”
-Mike Hazeldine, New Orleans Music
