Early in this book the author maks reference to an earlier work called Louis Armstongs New Orleans which deals with the period from 1900 to about 1922. Unfortunatly, this book is currently not available on audible. Master of Modernism covers Armstongs life and career from 1922 to the mid 1930s and while this volume absolutely stands on its own, it would be nice to have part one. There are also a number of references to CD tracks as if a cd was included in the print version but not the audio version. I don't know why these audio clips could'nt be included in the audio version
That being said I found this to be a great book and it would of real historical value to anyone who plays or just enjoys listening to Jazz.

Extremely thorough. Well written. The text refers to an accompanying CD with musical references to the text. The musical examples were provided. The audiobook should be interspersed with the musical examples. If it were five stars would be appropriate. Whenever the author talked about a certain song I needed to go to Amazon music to find the song and listen to it.
