Such deliberate disguises the art of Philip Larkin by Richard Palmer ( )
9 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 923 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In this work the author suggests that the ostensible simplicity of Larkin's writing is deceptive, masking as it does one of the richest and most resonant oeuvres in 20th-century poetry. He illuminates the spiritual significance of Larkin's poems, and shows the part jazz played in his aesthetic
A jazz odyssey : the life of Oscar Peterson by Oscar Peterson ( Book )
8 editions published between 2001 and 2003 in English and held by 901 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Jazz pianist Oscar Peterson is, in the words of Quincy Jones, "one of the greatest musicians on the planet." Born in Montreal in 1925 to immigrant parents of West Indian origin, he soon revealed himself to be a musical prodigy. He was still in his teens when he became the star attraction of Canada's leading big band, the renowned Johnny Holmes Orchestra, and had just turned twenty when he made his first trio recordings for RCA. During the 1950s he demonstrated another side to his musical genius, becoming a brilliant accompanist for jazz impresario Norman Granz's Jazz at the Philharmonic tours and on myriad recording sessions. He was the ideal foil for a host of musicians including Coleman Hawkins, Dizzy Gillespie, Lester Young, Roy Eldridge, Louis Armstrong, Charlie Parker and Billie Holiday. Despite a stroke in 1993, he continues to perform and record, making more music and swinging harder than most pianists accomplish in their prime."--Jacket

Sonny Rollins : the cutting edge by Richard Palmer ( Book )
6 editions published between 1998 and 2005 in English and held by 329 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Throughout his life as a tenor saxophonist, Theodore Walter 'Sonny' Rollins has been committed to the fundamental truths of jazz, especially swing, while managing also to be consistently experimental and forward looking. His recorded output includes over a dozen albums essential to any serious collection." "Yet Rollins is an enigmatic figure. The idealist who wrote the renowned and controversial Freedom Suite and who memorably declared "Jazz means no barriers" has also been prey to periods of diffidence, at times withdrawing from the music scene altogether. This revised and updated book (first published in the UK in 1998) charts in full the career of an artist who, at his best, remains one of jazz's most noble improvisers."--BOOK JACKET
