Baker & Taylor
Examines the lesser-known musical life of Ralph Ellison, author of Invisible Man, as seen through his fictional and non-fictional essays that include profiles of famous musicians.

Blackwell North Amer
Before Ralph Ellison became one of America's greatest writers, he was a musician and a student of jazz. The author of Invisible Man wrote widely and brilliantly on his favorite music for more than fifty years, immersing himself in the lives and works of America's musicians, some of whom were his close friends. Ellison is, in fact, perhaps the most important jazz analyst we have. In Living with Music, celebrated jazz authority Robert G. O'Meally has collected the very best of Ellison's writings on this subject - each selection vibrant, insightful, and bursting with Ellison's love of the music - in this unique and original anthology.
