    1. I read it concurrently with another stoop-find on the same general subject, "Swinging the Dream." It was interesting reading about all the politics associated with the Swing Era - WWII, Swing vs.Bop, Fascism, Communisim. Best quote from Sinatra, might be the other book, Frank Sinatra:"The minute anyone does anything for the little guy, he's called a communist."


    2. FINALLY DONE. Extremely useful to anyone looking at jazz during World War II or immediately after. Or even just interested in American culture during this years.
