Summerfield has written and published what may well be the definitive biography of his long-time friend the late, legendary guitarist, Barney Kessel. "Barney Kessel - A Jazz Legend'', with a foreword by Howard Alden, is published by Maurice's company, Ashley Mark Publishing.
His earlier tome -'' The Jazz Guitar. Its Evolution and its Players,'' has, since its publication in 1978, become the reference book for jazz guitar historians. It is also published by Ashley Mark.
