In the glittering firmament of American cultural history, Buddy Bolden’s star is barely distinguishable, its existence acknowledged mainly by its effect on what can be seen around it. We know the who and the where, but we don’t know the how, the what, or the why.

— writer, composer and performer Howard Fishman from his exclusive on-line piece on Buddy Bolden (see below)
