The Jazzsipper is set in the big Southern cities of New Orleans, and Atlanta. New Orleans known for Jazz and casually mislabeled as The Murder Capital of the United States, and Atlanta known as the new powerhouse locale for African- American meetings and conventions.

And a part time street vendor name Vance, aka Jazz for his love of Jazz music, intend to get by any means necessary, $132.2 million dollars of it, the amount that is spent with the street vendors. The story takes hold of you like a note hit by a Jazz Saxophonist, it moves you through one note, and instrument at a time
In Stardust Melodies, Will Friedwald takes each of these legendary songs apart and puts it together again, with a staggering wealth of detail and unprecedented understanding. Each chapter gives us an extended history of one song—the circumstances under which it was written and first performed—and then explores its musical and lyric content. Drawing on his vast knowledge of records and the careers of performing artists, Friedwald tells us who was responsible for making these songs famous and discusses in depth the performers who have left their unique marks on them. He writes about variations in performance style, about both classic and obscure versions of the songs, about brilliantly original interpretations and ghastly travesties. And then there’s the completely unexpected, like Stan Freberg’s politically correct “Elderly Man River.” This is a book for all lovers of American song to explore, argue with, and savor.
