"Page is tremendously versatile, a musical polymath in his interests and understanding. This collection includes both short pieces and longer articles, some about unique souls whom Page knew well and admired, including Glenn Gould and Otto Luening, and others about whom he feels strongly in other ways, among them Vladimir Horowitz. He takes readers along for closeup glimpses at Midori, Nadja Salerno-Sonnenberg, Dawn Upshaw, and Bobby McFerrin, as well as Frank Sinatra and Captain Beefheart, to name just a few."--BOOK JACKET.
