Cymbal Press is pleased to announce the forthcoming publication of Jazz Dialogues, by Jon Gordon. The book is set for publication on October 15, 2020.
“Jazz Dialogues is a rarity among books about jazz: It’s a book about people – the individual creators who devote their lives to the making of this profoundly individualistic art. It took a writer who’s a first-call musician himself to capture the way jazz artists think and feel, on the bandstand and off. From Cab Calloway and Doc Cheatham to Maria Schneider and Steve Wilson, Jon Gordon brings us face to face, mind to mind, heart to heart, with dozens of fascinating musicians. Like a great player in a jazz band, Gordon knows not only how to play, but how to listen.”
— David Hajdu, author of Lush Life: A Biography of Billy Strayhorn
