"The Parisian Jazz Chronicles offers a personal account of the jazz scene in Paris in the 1980s and 1990s. Zwerin writes lovingly but unsparingly about figures he knew and interviewed - such as Dexter Gordon, Freddy Heineken, Miles Davis, Bob Dylan, Chet Baker, Wayne Shorter, and Melvin Van Peebles. Against this background, Zwerin tells about his own life - split allegiances to journalism and music, and to America and France, his battle for sobriety, a failing marriage, and fatherhood."--Jacket
