Sammanfattning: Luck's in My Corner is a comprehensive biography of one of the most compelling jazz musicians of the Swing Era. Oran "Hot Lips" Pagewas the greatest of the Kansas City trumpeters, whose crackling, growling solos made him the go-to man on that instrument during Count Basie's earliest days as a leader. Page went on to be a featured soloist with Artie Shaw, a star of New York's 52nd street, and a pioneer of the R & B scene of the 1950s. Luck's in my corner: the life and music of Hot Lips Page brings this great musician, lost to time, out of the shadows and into the sunlight. Author Todd Bryant Weeks has traced in meticulous detail the path of Page's career, clarifying much that was obscure and questionable, and providing a perceptive musical analysis of his style and technique. He has also placed the man and the music firmly within the context of twentieth-century African-American and mainstream culture. This book includes a new and complete discography by the author and dozens of unpublished photos
