Out of Nowhere -
the musical life of Warne Marsh
Paperback. 318 pages. ISBN 978-0-595-51090-0
The book has been described (see “Readers’ Comments”) as one of the finest books written on ‘the music’ of any genre, and has made such an impact on several readers that, once the book was finished, they started reading it again.
This is as true for some who knew Warne very well as for those who did not know him at all and had never heard his music. There are not many books related to music that have that effect.
"I couldn't recommend it more highly! Being that it is written about my father (a loaded subject at the least) I found it to be supremely insightful and informative. Marcus manages to put his feet in Warne's shoes and tell us what he was seeing in the world around him as he grew up and played music.... It is brilliant."
K.C. Marsh, USA (May 2002)
"The book is one of the very best music books I've ever read ... an outstanding piece of jazz literature. Congratulations!"
Roland Baggenaes, Denmark (June 2002)
"It has the serenity of complex and perfect harmony."
Philippe Paschel, France (December 2003)
¨Such a beautiful book, pure poetry!¨
