Book of the Year!

Cymbal Press is excited to announce that our first book, “Life in E Flat – The Autobiography of Phil Woods,” was voted Book of the Year for 2021 by the Jazz Journalists Association!

This prestigious recognition would have been impossible without the cooperation of Jill Goodwin, collaboration of Ted Panken (a double 2021 JJA winner), contributions by Bill Charlap and Brian Lynch, art direction by Yvonne Martinez, photo retouching by Vivian Martinez, and tireless editing by Sylvia Martinez. Many thanks to the great jazz musicians and writers who contributed pre-publication reviews.

Cymbal Press is  humbled to have our work honored among these amazing artists and to be selected among the other terrific nominated books:
