Artie Shaw his life and music by John White( )

6 editions published between 2004 and 2006 in English and held by 1,025 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"As the dashing and handsome leader of one of America's most accomplished big bands in the 1930s and 40s, Artie Shaw achieved measures of fame and fortune which temporarily eclipsed even those of his great rival, Benny Goodman. By 1990, his total sales exceeded 100 million records. Yet Artie Shaw has always been an ambitiously serious musician who frequently tired of the music business, often forsaking it for extended periods. He also achieved renown as a writer of fiction." "Unlike Benny Goodman, Shaw has not been well served by jazz historians. This study (a revised edition of a book first published in the UK in 1998) offers a compelling narrative account and an intelligent analytical assessment of the achievements and concerns of a major figure in American popular music."--BOOK JACKET
