    WHAT THE CRITICS SAY ABOUT THIS BOOK.... // “A hallelujah of a book... that leaves you searching for superlatives.” – Books in Canada // “A masterly performance... that deserves to be read by anyone interested in North American history.” – Jazz Journal (UK) // “An amazingly comprehensive and highly readable portrait of the Montreal jazz community as it struggled to survive and nourish itself as part of the city’s nightlife subculture.... Essential reading.” – University of Toronto Quarterly // “This impressive work is a resource of the utmost importance for understanding what led up to one of the greatest of all summer jazz events, the Montreal International Jazz Festival.” – Jazz Hot (France) // “It is not only jazz enthusiasts who should read this book for it makes an important contribution to the social history of Montreal, providing new perspectives on, for example, the history of the city's black community [and] Mayor Drapeau's campaign against organized crime and vice.... A... More > particularly gripping chapter on free jazz enriches our understanding of the turbulent political agitation of the sixties and seventies.” – Centre for Quebec Studies, University of Leicester (UK) // “The tale is so rich and varied that most readers will quickly find themselves pulled in by the narrative flow.... [The book] might serve as a model for future books about the jazz history of other cities.” – Cadence (USA) // “Gilmore shows a genuine love and respect for the music and its creators, but he is also a disciplined researcher who doesn’t let enthusiasm interfere with honest, balanced portrayals.” – Ottawa Citizen (Canada) // “Essential reading for anyone interested in music in general and in Montreal in particular.” – La Presse (Montreal) //< Less
