In the old jazz TV program, I like “Jazz  625” most.

The Moderator of this program was Humphrey Lyttelton.

He was famous trombone player in Europe.

In addition, he had  written the history of jazz.

“The best of Jazz:Basin Street to Harlem” [Jazz masters and Masterpiece 1917-1930].

This book had been written in the description meaningful to jazz beginners like me.

To tell the truth, it was foreign book I read first.
