"Dirk Sutro, obviously, is madly in love with jazz and its foremost players. It is also more than obvious that he knows what he's talking about." —"Chubby" Jackson, jazz bassist

"When asked, "What is Jazz?" the great Louis Armstrong replied, 'If you have to ask, you'll never know.' With Jazz For Dummies, now you can know one of...America's greatest contributions to world culture." —Jon Faddis, jazz trumpeter

"Dirk Sutro has done an excellent job of conveying to the layman the intricacies and subtle nuances involved in the playing of jazz music. Well done!" —Charles McPherson, jazz saxophonist and composer

"Not only is Jazz For Dummies educational, it's fun to read. This book provides an important stepping stone to understanding this complex, profound music. After all, Jazz is America's only true art form. It's about time someone did Jazz For Dummies. Thanks to Dirk Sutro...It's here! —James Moody, jazz saxophonist

Jazz For Dummies is clear, concise, and a accurate look at the jazz scene, a major step in demystifying the music and making it more accessible. Long overdue, if you could have just one book about jazz, this should be the one." —Bobby Matos, Latin jazz recording artist, percussionist, leader of Bobby Matos & the Afro Cuban Jazz Ensamble
