The second edition (2019) updates and adds to the original (2013) by Dr. Seth Greenberg.
Over 10 years of comprehensive research went into writing Billy Bean: The Life and Music of a Jazz Guitar Legend.
This is the abridged edition of Billy Bean: The Life and Music of a Jazz Legend. In contrast to the original two-volume edition, this edition is one volume and retains only the biographical aspects of the original edition; no musical analyses or reproductions of Bean's autograph manuscripts are included.
This edition is ideal for those who are interested in Bean's story, but prefer not to read through technical writing that requires a background in music theory.
