5 Driggs, Frank and Chuck Haddix. Kansas City Jazz: From Ragtime to Bebop - A History.
Oxford University Pess, 20Ä05. First Edition. 
Signed & Inscribed by Chuck Haddix. Octavo, black cloth & yellow boards (hardcover), xi + 274 pp. Fine (As New) in a Fine (Ass New) dust jacket. Illustrated. From dust jacket: In this colorful history, Frank Driggs and Chuck Haddix range from ragtime to bebop and from Bennie Moten to Charlie Parker to capturre the golden age of Kansas City jazz. Readers will find a vibrant portrait of old Kaycee itself, back then a neon riot of bars, gambling dens, and taxi dance halls, all ruled over by Boss Tom Pendergast, who had transformed a dusty cowtown into the Paris of the Plains. We see how this wide-open, gin-soaked town gave birth to a music tthat was more basic and more viscerally exciting than other styles of jazz, its singers beliting out a rough-and-tumble urban style of blues, its piano players pounding out a style later known as boogie-woogie. We visit the great landmarks, like the Reno Club, the Biggest Little Club in the World, where Lester Young and Count Basie made jazz history and Charlie Parker began his musical education in the alley out back. And of course the authors illuminate the lives of the great musicians who made Kansas City swing...
