More from the Penguin Jazz Guide

Bud Freeman: I had ambitions to be a Shakespearean actor when I was a young man, but I've been strutting this stage ever since... You don't have to learn swordplay to be a jazz musician, though it might help with promoters.
-----
Creed Taylor on Harry James: He had no small opinion of himself, an ego the size of Plymouth Rock, but then he was moored to Betty Grable and that can't have helped. I didn't care much for that vibrato either. It just seemed to be saying, "Look at me!"
