The book is based upon the words of Tony Parenti as gathered by Roy Morser and Frank Gillis.

A pioneer New Orleans clarinetist in the early years of the century: a highly paid staff musician in the formative years of radio: a star of the Ted Lewis band for many years: and for two decades a highly respected member of the dixieland circuit in New York. Tony Parenti played with all the greatest jazzmen. Names such as Eddie Condon, Jack Teagarden, George Lewis, Louis Armstrong, Wild Bill Davison, Zutty Singleton, Red Allen and all the greats of that era fill the pages of his story. He helped to keep the ragtime tradition alive in the barren years before “The Sting” and he showed Florida how dixieland jazz should be played.
