‘Graham Collier’s radical new analysis of the place of the composer in jazz is nothing less than a complete reassessment of the direction in which the music is developing and a powerful argument for fresh thinking. He focuses on Duke Ellington, Charles Mingus and Gil Evans, among many other composers, and includes musical examples from his own work.’
Orders for the book can be placed here but will be filled by the publishers Northway Books in London.
