Reviews

Thomas Brothers has brought together startling new discoveries and insights, a fresh look at hallowed recordings, and an understanding of the multifold influences that helped shape Louis Armstrong. In so doing, he has written by far the most complete and original look at an American icon whose influence continues into its second century.--Loren Schoenberg, artistic director, the National Jazz Museum in Harlem
Brothers proves his thesis and then some...an encyclopedic authority.--C.W. Mahoney
