Entertaining troops in WWII Europe, Marian met her future husband, Jimmy McPartland, a cocky young trumpet player who was the protege of the great Bix Beiderbecke. They were married and, together, they made jazz history. More than the life story of one of our greatest artists, this book chronicles an age when jazz was a vital art form.
