Books that you WISHED existed, that you'd actually buy

A followup to Jean Jacques Sempe's The Musicians - Perhaps he has done another book of drawings of musicians. If so, I haven't seen it.

Still waiting for that followup, in the meantime here is a sample from Sempé's latest book 'Sentiments Distingués' out this week!

:) Thanks for that, brownie. I'll be getting that new book. I'll have to check whether it's coming out in the US - if not, I'll look elsewhere.

Thanks for both compliments. I have to admit that I feel that I'm a mediocre writer on my best days.

I've enjoyed brownie's writings here, and would buy and read a collection of his life in the jazz world and his forays into other realms.

Another book that I'd buy and read, should it ever exist, would be The Nessa Chronicles. The few times that Chuck has stretched out on Organissimo have been special moments. He's a true writer, and as much as I enjoy his everyday pithy comments, I hope that he'll do more stretching out some day.

He's probably on the couch as we speak!

Books that you WISHED existed, that you'd actually buy, (or perhaps they do exist?? - !!!)

A book that tells teenagers that their college educated parents aren't stupid and just might know how to get accepted to college.

Nah.

That'll never happen.

What was I thinking?

In jazz:

I'd like to see thoroughly researched biographies on Jackie McLean and Albert Ayler

Actually, Peter Niklas Wilson wrote a conscientious biography of Albert Ayler titled Spirits Rejoice: Albert Ayler und seine Botschaft (that is, A.A. and his Message), published in 1996 by Wolke. But the book's in German.

Which reminds me...anyone know where I put John's book? I thought it was next to Hentoff's Jazz Life, but I can't find it... :unsure:
