The Producer-John Hammond

I just received a beautiful book in the post about John Hammond, the producer who first signed Bob Dylan. Hammond, who Dylan writes of in Chronicles was a jazz buff. He also discovered Billie Holiday, Count Basie, Aretha Franklin, not to mention Bruce Springsteen.

Review soon, in the meantime check out The Producer, John Hammond and the Soul of American Music.

Thanks to Mike Pascuzzi.
