Jazz and Death
Medical Profiles of Jazz Greats
Physician author Spencer examines the lives, health and true causes of death of many 20th century jazz musicians, correcting some of the misinformation provided by rumor and speculation. The chapters are arranged by illness, noting the significance of dental disease for horn players, and, of course, covering issues of drug and alcohol addiction, lifestyles of musicians, peer group pressures, diet and stress.
