A Conversation with John Gennari. By Greg Thomas at All About Jazz.
Haven’t read all of this yet, but I’m anxious to dive in. Even if you’re just a casual fan of jazz or jazz criticism, I can’t recommend strongly enough Gennari’s excellent book, Blowin’ Hot and Cool: Jazz and Its Critics, the sort of book you wish every critical sub-genre had at least one of (I know of only one such overriding attempt to tell the story of rock criticism, though I’m sure there are others).
See here for some previous thoughts on Gennari’s tome.
