Live from the Book Shop: John Updike's Ghost

Mar 7, 2023

In this special episode, Hannah is away in France, so of course Sam decides to interview Aidan Levy, author of the brand-new "Saxophone Colossus," a definitive biography of the great jazz musician Sonny Rollins. In addition, we're joined by Carl Smith, a fellow Mainer and the authoritative archivist of Rollins' live recordings. Even if you're not a huge jazz fan, take a listen to hear about putting together a 750-page biography over the course of seven years and about the passion Rollins inspired. Also, don't miss Aidan and Carl at Print, in Portland, ME, March 10, 2023, at 7 p.m.
