Their legacy embraces the flinty, dissonant elegance of pianist Thelonius Monk- the breezy lyricism and dazzling technique of guitarist Wes Montgomery- and the warmth, vocal dexterity, and captivating optimism of singer Ella Fitzgerald.Saxophonist John Coltranes restless quest for an all-but-unplayable dream is documented, as is trumpeter Dizzy Gillespies deft combination of showbiz and radical musicianship, and the story of how baritone saxophonist Gerry Mulligan made Cool Jazz a hot ticket in the pop charts of the early 1950s.

With evocative archival photographs and a discography of the musicians most important works.
