Both Coleman and Young revered the composer, who (in Colemans words) viewed music as an elixir, an antidote to the poison, [and] a religious calling. But theyre not too reverent to overlook Minguss eccentricities, which included hitting the streets of New York with a bow, a quiver, and a suitcase full of extra arrows. This is a funny, touching, and instructive book.
