3 Shades of Blue Write-up in Ralph Lauren Magazine

Author James Kaplan’s latest book 3 Shades of Blue takes center stage for Bruce Handy’s recent RL Mag piece.

“To my taste, this one goes immediately to the top shelf of great books about jazz or any other music. You may already know—should know—Kaplan as the author of a masterful two-volume biography of Frank Sinatra, Frank: The Voice (2010) and Sinatra: The Chairman (2015), which, along with his subsequent Irving Berlin: New York Genius (2019), established him as something like the Robert Caro of the Great American Songbook.” – Bruce Handy, RL Mag
