First US edition. Chilton is probably best known for his work accompanying George Melly, but as a writer he was one of the few Europeans to win a Grammy - for his liner notes for Bunny Berigan (1983) - and the present work was considered by Phillip Larkin to be "one of the essential jazz books."
Large octavo. Original black cloth, titles to spine and front board in metallic purple and green. With dust jacket.
92 black and white plates.
Gift inscription to front free endpaper. An excellent copy in the lightly rubbed jacket with a few short splits and toned spine panel.
