Summary
"These thirteen original essays draw together Gene Lee's observations on the craft of the arranger. Covering the field from big bands to films to studio backings for singers, Lees brings his characteristic blend of personal and inside knowledge, reportage and criticism to bear on major figures in the development of large band writing. His portrait of Miles Davis's arranger Gil Evans is one of the few essays written on this significant composer, and the majority of the other arrangers featured in the book have not been the subjects of in-depth portraits." "This book will appeal to anyone interested in popular music."--BOOK JACKET
