Chris, I got your name by searching out qualified music reviewers from the Amazon list of Top Reviewers and/or from reviews of specific jazz books. I've recently published a book of interviews with Charles Mingus called Mingus Speaks. You can find information on my website, and at 1 Amazon lists it here.
I hope you might be interested in reading the book and posting a review of it on Amazon. My publisher will be glad to send you an eGalley or Edelweiss electronic file at no charge. Just tell us what you prefer. Please write to:

Best regards,
John Goodman,
