'Harry tells the tale very entertainingly... almost like listening to this incredible noagenarian chatting over a glass or two of Irish whiskey,' Jazz at Ronnie Scott's. 'A vivid picture of a musician's life on the road through much of the Jazz Century,' Jazz Rag. 'A very entertaining... chronicle of the wide-ranging achievements of a remarkable man,' Jazz Journal.
