The Miles Davis Lost Quintet and Other Revolutionary Ensembles Reviews
Bob Gluck’s new work is written with much heart, warmth, and intelligence. I hope this starts a new wave of academic books that focus on good narrative, new concepts, and sophistication without having to fall into the academic jargon charade.
3 stars for miles,4 for the others ,as most of them were new to me. For me its miles forever and I know I must have read all what is available.
