New York: Doubleday, 1979. First Edition / First Printing. Hardcover. Inscribed "To -- / Be Bop! / Dizzy Gillespie - 10/14/79" on the front flyleaf. With many photos, a select discography and a great deal of unique oral history from most of the jazz greats of his time, this is a must-have for jazz fans. Large 8vo boards, 552 pages. The book itself is very fine, the jacket has an unnecessary almost invisible tiny tape repair inside top rear corner flap, otherwise the jacket is very fine, the price unclipped. The book presents as a practically new copy.
