Knopf, New York, 1971, Stated First Edition. Written over a twenty year period, edited from a original manuscript of a thousand pages, this is an extraordinary and harrowing self-portrait of the great jazz bassist and composer. One of the most compelling and illuminating of all jazz memoirs which belongs in the same class as pianist, Hampton Hawes', 'Raise Up Off Me' and saxophonist Art Pepper's 'Straight Life'. Quarter bound in silver gilt cloth over black boards, spine ends are slightly pushed, small mark to top edge, several of the pages are lightly crimped at the top fore edge, else, near fine; in a like dust jacket, price clipped, hint of wear to spine ends and panel edges. J1822
