Individual sections pay particular homage to the words of Ron Carter, T. S. Monk, The Beatles, and Benny Golson. Musicians, music lovers, and those who love hearing from the talented and famous will savor this collection of provocative, mischievous, and profound words from musical personalities of the past and present.
