About the author (1983)

Carol adopted Nicky when he was a six-week-old kitten and photographed him as soon as she got him home. Nicky loved posing for the camera and routinely walked onto the set as if he owned it. He especially liked being photographed with the musicians and singers whom he regarded as his friends and co-stars. Photographs of him with celebrated figures have appeared in books, magazines, and on CD covers. Just after his twentieth birthday, Nicky left New York to go on the road. He is now touring with his favorite jazz musicians.

Gary Giddins lives in New York City.
