Jazz Books for Sale

Recommended Posts

In my continuing effort to downsize I would like to offer the following books for sale. All prices include media mail within the USA. I will gladly mail to other countries at cost. I will accept paypal or your check. Send me a pm if you see something you want.

I have tried to price everything fairly, but I am open to offers, especially for multiple titles.
