This book details Spanier’s life and career. Some of it is in the words of his wife plus those of the many musicians who were colleagues. Thus there is much insight into the man’s character and personality, as well as his dedication to jazz as he thought it should be played. In addition, there is a full discography of his recorded work covering forty years from 1924. Compact disc includes rare and previously unissued material.
