Críticas:

"Papa Jo Jones is Brer Rabbit with a drum kit and opposable thumbs. In his own spellbinding voice, musical history and philosophy come alive on the page." --Mat Johnson, author of "Pym"

""Rifftide" is a gem of a book about one of the forgotten founding fathers of Swing. Jo Jones was more than a jazz genius--he was also one of the great characters and chroniclers of American life during the Swing Era. Based on extensive oral interviews and years of painstaking research, Rifftide is a terrific source not only for students of jazz, but also American history, African-American studies, linguistics, and sociology. " --Debby Applegate, author of "The Most Famous Man in America: The Biography of Henry Ward Beecher"

"With a pronounced irascible streak to match his heterodox approach to drumming, Papa Jo Jones (1911-85) was an ideal candidate to star in the kind of book that delights jazz fans: the straight-talking, defiantly espousing firsthand record. Anyone interested in authenticity of voice is going to be on the verge of fist-pumping the air throughout, or else exclaiming, 'You tell it like it is, baby, ' as if partaking in a call-and-response with the book." --"New York Times"

"It is a very entertaining, thought provoking, and insightful read in better understanding such a burning talent and innovator. This is Papa Jo Jones, an American original through his riffing and unvarnished commentary on life and music." --"JazzTimes"

""Rifftide" is an easy, fun read that I'll keep returning to." --Ethan Iverson

"Jo Jones, an elegant, swinging dude, always had a style of his own. When he was with us, you could hear him, feel him everything was right there." Count Basie"

"I first met Jo Jones at the RKO Theater in Boston when I was a teenager in the early 1940s and we were friends until he passed away. He was my first influence and my major influence. He was Papa Jo to me before they gave him that title. He was like a father to me. For drummers of my generation, Jo was the president of the drums just like Lester Young was president of the tenor saxophone. Jo loved to talk, and when he spoke it was almost as if he was playing the drums: you d give him your undivided attention. "Rifftide" conveys a fine sense of his voice and the larger than life dimensions of his personality." Roy Haynes"

"Albert Murray has helped keep the incomparable Jo Jones alive through the voice of Count Basie in "Good Morning Blues" and fictionally in" The Magic Keys, " but in "Rifftide," thanks to the persistence of editor Paul Devlin, we get to hear Jo himself in all his dynamic, adrenalized, anecdotal, no-bull glory riffing with words as heartily as he did on the hi-hat." Gary Giddins, author of "Warning Shadows "and "Jazz""

Reseña del editor:

Finalist for Best Jazz Book of the Year Award from the Jazz Journalists Association
"
The things that I have, I ll give to you. This is my legacy with you, Albert. This is my last hoo-rah. "So begins the autobiography of Jonathan David Samuel Jones or as the world better knows him, Papa Jo Jones. Playing with Count Basie and his orchestra when they exploded out of Kansas City in 1936 and took the world by storm, Jones went on to inspire generations of jazz drummers, but until now few have had access to his own remarkable story.

"Rifftide" presents Jones s inimitable life and opinions, as originally told by Jones to the prominent jazz historian and novelist Albert Murray and now transcribed, arranged, and introduced by Paul Devlin. Drawn from fourteen tapes recorded over eight years beginning in 1977, "Rifftide" is an impressionistic series of riffs and tales by Jones: his life as a musician on the road in segregated America, his outstanding solo career following his years with the Basie band, and his interactions with iconic artists and cultural figures of the time, including Ralph Ellison, James Baldwin, Langston Hughes, Duke Ellington, Louis Armstrong, Bill Bojangles Robinson, and Satchell Paige.

A true American original and jazz luminary, Papa Jo Jones bedazzled and intrigued many with his outrageous, volatile personality and his innovative drumming and nowhere does his fierce intellect and humor shine more marvelously than in his life s telling. With a fascinating introduction and annotations by Paul Devlin and an afterword by Phil Schaap, jazz historian and longtime friend of Jones, "Rifftide" reveals a man at the forefront of both a whole new form of music and a country in the midst of incredible turmoil and opportunity. As Jones himself puts it: "Listen man, I ve had a hell of a time . . .
