About Stuart Nicholson


Reissued in stunning new cover, to match the new edition of Nicholson's Billie Holiday 'This biography is a model not only of research, but of musical insight' Observer 'Just to state that this book is a full account of this splendid lady's life and times barely hints at the depth and detail which the indefatigable Nicholson has unearthed ... A triumph' Crescendo & Jazz Music 'When it comes to the music Nicholson is right on' Washington Post Nicholson is a shrewd critic, handling the roll-call of names from bebop and beyond with care and judgement ... his discography is exemplary' The Times 'Knocks spots off earlier attempts at Ella's biography' The Wire
