Description
Praise for Nica's Dream: "Finally! Nica's story told in Technicolor, with the grandeur to match her own. David Kastin penetrates the myths and legends about the Jazz Baroness. In doing so, he gives us a stunning cultural biography of New York City and a riveting portrait of one of the most fascinating figures of the twentieth century. Bravo!"--Robin D. G. Kelley, author of Thelonious Monk: The Life and Times of an American Original "With a journalist's dedication to research and a storyteller's passion for historical context, Kastin relates the most unusual life of Baroness Pannonica de Koenigswater--the woman who left behind a family and a fortune to dedicate herself to the maestri of modern jazz."--Ashley Kahn, author of The House that Trane Built "The Baroness Pannonica de Koenigswarter was a cultural bridge and source of understanding for an enormously important generation of jazz musicians. This book is a must-read."--T. S. Monk "David Kastin has written the definitive biography of one of the most elusive, beguiling, and pivotal personalities in twentieth-century music. The story of Pannonica is essential reading for all fans of art, culture, and jazz."--Robert Kraft, president, Fox Music Inc. "Nica's Dream is a brilliant and incisive addition to the history of jazz. The Baroness Nica is portrayed in such a truthful fashion that those of us blessed to have known her now can introduce her to anyone by giving them a copy of this outstanding biography. Nica's Dream reads like a picaresque novel. But it's all true."--David Amram, American composer, musician, and author "A stunning biography of Monk's patron. What a story!" --Phil Schaap, curator and jazz historian, WKCR
