Notes and Tones is one of the most controversial, honest, and insightful books ever written about jazz. It consists of twenty-nine no-holds-barred conversations which drummer Arthur Taylor held with the most influential jazz musicians of the '60s and '70s-including:

Art Blakey
Betty Carter
Don Cherry
Kenny Clarke
Ornette Coleman
Miles Davis
Kenny Dorham
Dizzy Gillespie
Hampton Hawes
Freddie Hubbard
Elvin Jones
Carmen McRae
Max Roach
Sonny Rollins
Nina Simone
Randy Weston

As a black musician himself, Arthur Taylor was able to ask his subjects hard questions about the role of black artists in a white society. Free to speak their minds, these musicians offer startling insights into their music, their lives, and the creative process itself. This expanded edition is supplemented with previously unpublished interviews with Dexter Gordon and Thelonious Monk, a new introduction by the author, and new photographs.
