Clawing at the Limits of Cool

Read
Clawing at the Limits of Cool: Miles Davis, John Coltrane, and the Greatest Jazz Collaboration Ever

The new book by
Farah Jasmine Griffin and Salim Washington

This is a well-written, informative book.... Clawing at the Limits of Cool is wonderful for the musician who seeks a greater understanding of the legacies of two of jazz's most important figures. - Karen Hogg, AllAboutJazz.com

Editor's Pick for June 10, 2008
This is a readable and important addition to the growing body of literature on these key figures. Necessary for all music collections; a good choice for both academic and public libraries. - Mark Woodhouse, Library Journal (LibraryJournal.com)
