For copies write grange.rutan@aol.com still copies left! For the past 15 years I interviewed over 400 luminaries of the jazz world and on April 9, 2007, CADENCE JAZZ BOOKS, the largest publisher of jazz books, published: DEATH OF A BEBOP WIFE by Grange "Lady Haig" Rutan - the biography of AL HAIG, the chosen pianist of Charlie Parker and Dizzy Gillespie and later Stan Getz. My book was launched on April 16th at The Hard Rock Hotel at AJ's and the reviews have been stellar. PHIL WOODS: "FASCINATING" DR. HERB WONG - Past President of the International Association for JAZZ EDUCATION: "GRANGE RUTAN'S writing reveals a brilliant and relentlessly thorough action researcher and historian. Her sense of historical and personal sense of place and time plus seductive emotionality leads the reader to uncover fascinating segues of jazz life episodes. "DEATH OF A BEBOP WIFE" is a virtual bebop bible - a SINGULAR SOURCE BOOK WHICH SHOULD BE ESSENTIAL READING IN EVERY JAZZ STUDIES CURRICULUM."
