    The Jazz Makers (1957) talks about the lives and work of 21 influential jazz musicians--early pioneers like Jelly Roll Morton and Louis Armstrong and modern artists (modern for 1957) like Dizzy Gillespie and Charlie Parker.I especially enjoyed reading about Jelly Roll, Warren "Baby" Dodds, Louis Armstrong, Earl Hines, Bix Beiderbecke, Fats Waller, Art Tatum, Charlie Parker, Bessie Smith, Billie Holiday, Charlie Christian and Dizzy Gillespie.
