The five million copy best-selling series
Paul Barnes took up the trumpet at the age of 11, and while at art school he played in the Weary City Stompers (WC, for short). He has worked as a presenter on BBC Radio 4's Today, The World at One, and Woman's Hour, among others, and continues to dispense his blend of rhythm and rhubarb weekly - some say weakly - on the BBC radio programme The Late Paul Barnes.
'An amazing amount of solid fact disguised as frivolous observation.' THE SUNDAY TELEGRAPH 'A series which threatens to undermine the proper foundations of knowledge.' TODAY 'The Bluffer's Guides present the means to apparent instant erudition without actually having to know or study anything.' THE DAILY MAIL 'No two jazz enthusiasts ever agree about anything. This witty, elegant book, mixing the erudite with the mythical, will bolster spirited disagreements for many years to come.' -- Alyn Shipton, writer, critic and presenter BBC Radio 3's Jazz Record Requests 'Hilarious! I'm insisting all my civilian friends read this as soon as possible!' -- Claire Martin OBE, jazz singer and presenter BBC Radio 3's Jazz Line-Up
