about

“Waldron’s compositions have memorable melodies, unpredictable turns, and multiple strains. This is the equivalent of finding a folio of new Jelly Roll Morton or Tiny Parham songs.”

– Michael Steinman, JAZZ LIVES


This book & music collection reaches back to the earliest days of jazz in Seattle and introduces a new generation to the music of Frank D. Waldron — as exciting and enjoyable today as in the Jackson Street “Golden Age”.

–Dick Stein, Jazz host, KNKX 88.5 FM
