World Who's Who in Jazz, Cabaret, Music, and Entertainment
Publication date: February 2007
Digital Book format: PDF (DRM-Free)
This is the first Who's Who that deals with the world of Jazz, Cabaret, and Entertainment. It should serve as reference for performers, promoters, publicists, booking agents, venue owners, students, schools, libraries, and music industry executives, as well as the general public. Those who read "Who's Who" books-regardless of the field-easily find one common denominator: "Who's Who" books are dry. Effort was made to avoid this tendency in the World Who's Who of Jazz, Cabaret, Music, and Entertainment. Although using fact and data-found in or supplied by reliable sources, personal feelings and material were added. To accomplish this, the world of the artist not usually seen on stage or behind the mic was probed. Candid and personal stories, anecdotes, and intimate statements were sometimes provided directly by the artist or told by friends and peers. After all, this is a world of enchantment, glamour, and fun-and so it cannot be treated like a mathematical formula! In traditional "Who's Who" books, those listed are usually figures well known to the public or in their own field. In this Who's Who you will meet, on equal basis, mega stars and celebrities, as well as outstanding talent you have never heard of. This book is not based on fame and fortune alone, but also on merit. There are over two million performers in the world, it is impossible to include all of them in two volumes. This book brings to you those who are believed to be the best in the business.
