Art Blakey Cookin’ and Jammin’: Recipes and Remembrances From a Jazz Life, Amazon Prime Hardcover


A culinary memoir of the famous New York jazz drummer Art Blakey, written with love and candor by the woman who knew him best, shared his life for 22 years and helped raise his son Takashi. Foreword by Dr. John (Mac Rebennack). Interspersed between anecdotes are dozens of recipes that Art and Sandy developed and used, on and off the road. Twenty photos complete this fascinating look at the life of a jazz great. You will want two copies of this 5×7 hardcover book — one for the kitchen and the other for your library. “Off the charts! This intimate portrayal of Art Blakey…is jam packed with honesty, rich with sweet vignettes, and his recipes, and spiced with intimate and personal stories. It is exceedingly readable and presents new facets of this brilliant, complex, and creative soul who shaped jazz artists and American music for over half a century.”– Jelly Roll Justice of WWOZ-FM, New Orleans. Dr. John says, “This ain’t just another book of recipes. It’s the sweet ‘n sour story of a woman and her man makin’ a home, raisin’ a son, and turnin’ up the flame everyplace they went.”
