Inhaltsangabe: The warm and exhilarating memoirs of a renowned jazz musician and teacher. Willie Ruff has made a life out of music and learning--in his boyhood in poor, rural Alabama; in performances with Lionel Hampton, Miles Davis, and other greats; and through his years as a professor of music at Yale University.
