Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Kim Fields

Historical Fiction • 7.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2010

Narrator Kim Fields pulls out all the stops portraying a sophisticated young jazz trumpeter and the many gnarly characters she meets in the urban jazz scene. Didi Herron is crisscrossing the country, looking for a tape of her father's last jazz performance. The versatile Fields captures the heroine's longing and determination, as well as the edgy dynamics of African-American jazz culture. It's a story that reveals the challenges of making it in the music business, but the novel's hook is the heroine's quest, not only for the sound of her father playing his last gig but also for the piece of her musical soul that went missing when he died in a car crash in his mid-20s, just after that performance. This is a must-hear audiobook. T.W. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2019]
