Life of a Jazz Man
RICK MARTIN was a thin blond kid who grew up with music in his head - music that had to come out of a horn.
SMOKE JORDAN, Rick's best friend, helped him discover the thrilling world of jazz.
AMY NORTH, beautiful, unpredictable, loved Rick but could not compete with the music that throbbed in his brain.
This is a memorable and moving novel of a brilliant jazz musician and his fascinating, frenetic world.
