Living with music : Ralph Ellison's jazz writings by Ralph Ellison( Book )

21 editions published between 2001 and 2003 in English and held by 1,019 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Before Ralph Ellison became one of America's greatest writers, he was a musician and a student of jazz. The author of Invisible Man wrote widely and brilliantly on his favorite music for more than fifty years, immersing himself in the lives and works of America's musicians, some of whom were his close friends. Ellison is, in fact, perhaps the most important jazz analyst we have. In Living with Music, celebrated jazz authority Robert G. O'Meally has collected the very best of Ellison's writings on this subject - each selection vibrant, insightful, and bursting with Ellison's love of the music - in this unique and original anthology."--Jacket
