Review:

“Ramsey too is head-over-heels in love with jazz, and this collection of his essays, profiles and reviews, culled from various publications, brilliantly conveys the intensity of the music and the voices of the musicians who make it. With intelligence, warmth and wit, Ramsey writes of the revolutionaries (from Louis Armstrong to Miles Davis), the tragic geniuses who succumbed to drugs (“Even when Charlie Parker required physical support so that he could solo, his playing has an imperial, desolate beauty”) and those who are accused of selling out (“when a superior musician e.g., George Benson achieves success with watered-down material he doesn’t necessarily dilute his art, however rarely he may choose or be allowed to work at it”). Occasionally the essays meander, but on the whole, Ramsey has compiled a valuable overview of the sadly underappreciated ‘mother lode of American music.'”

Publishers Weekly


 

“[Jazz Matters] brings to mind hours of great conversations with old friends and memories of musicians who have now departed this planet. This book revives (in the true sense of the word) those lives.”

—Dave Brubeck



“[Ramsey] understands, he appreciates, he values excellence wherever he finds it, he cares deeply—and he is able to express his feelings with warmth, wit, and intelligence. I am an unabashed Ramsey fan.”

—Orrin Keepnews



“There is much to enjoy in Doug Ramsey’s collection of essays on jazz. His love of the music, his superior knowledge, sensitivity, and humor permeate his writing, and through this, one can better understand and appreciate jazz and the musicians who create it.”

—Marion McPartland
