Aurum Press, London, 2002, First UK Edition. An interesting account of the famous Massey Hall concert of May 1953, often referred to as the greatest jazz concert ever, at which the luminaries of Be Bop, Parker, Gillespie, Powell, Mingus and Roach, played to a half full hall! Haydon uses the night of the concert as a focus around which to explore radical changes in the jazz of the 40's as well as to present vivid biographical portraits of these extraordinary musicians who were at the centre of the 'new music'. Fine in teal cloth boards, in an about fine, unclipped dust jacket, touch of shelf wear to panels J1574
