Paul Whiteman : Pioneer in American Music, 1930-1967 Hardback

Part of the Studies in Jazz series


In this second volume of Rayno's magisterial treatment of the life and music of this remarkable maestro, Whiteman's career during the second half of his life is explored in the fullest detail, as Whiteman conquers the worlds of theater and vaudeville, the concert hall, radio, motion pictures, and television, winning accolades in all of them.

Through hundreds of interviews, extensive documentation, and exhaustive research of over nearly three decades, a portrait emerges of one of American music's most important musical figures during the last century.

Rayno paints a stunning portrait of Whiteman's considerable accomplishments and far-reaching influence.
