Publisher's Summary

Ben Sidran: A Life in the Music is much more than a musician's memoir; it's a picaresque story about a personal quest, the search for meaning at the beginning of a new millennium. Sidran delves into the complex relationships between African-Americans and Jews, fathers and sons, history and hope, money and technology, ecstasy and transformation. His animated, well-crafted prose deftly expresses his life-long affair with music in all its functions: as prayer, as community, as legacy, and as nothing but a party. It is a Pilgrim's Progress for another generation.

    Story
    "A Philosophy of Living Jazz"

    Ben Sidran’s writing and narration is as poetic and rhythmic as his music, and his reflections on his life and making the music he loves rings deep and true. This book is a meditation on the author’s way of being, sharing, loving and working which arcs into a form of spiritual transformation. Ben’s descriptions of his childhood are as rich as his vignettes of working with the who’s who of Jazz and beyond. It was a pleasure to listen to and truly enriching as well.
