Joyous Exuberance

David Margolick gives a fair review of Terry Teachout's Pops, but a very fine review is to be found in the Dec. 14 edition of The New Yorker (not available on line).  It is by John McWhorter and he explains both Satchmo's "joyous exuberance" and "loud dignity."  Very much worth reading, as you listen to West End Blues.
