Shelf Awareness Reviews ‎ ‎3 Shades of Blue

James Kaplan’s 3 Shades of Blue graces Shelf Awarenesslatest newsletter via their “Best Books Reviewed” list.

“Fans of jazz and its mid-20th-century evolution who are looking for a history that’s the cat’s meow (for nonenthusiasts, that means excellent) will want to snap up a copy of 3 Shades of Blue by James Kaplan… Kaplan devotes this appreciation to jazz created from 1942 to 1967, music he calls ‘[n]ot antique, not anodyne, not forbiddingly difficult, and viscerally thrilling.'” – Michael Magras, Shelf Awareness
