[JPL] GOOD WORK, Sanna! --- How 'Bout A Bibliography Of Jazz Photographers!?

Missing from the list (among others) is Paul Bley's "Stopping Time" and "An 
Unsung Cat - The Life and Music of Warne Marsh" by Safford Chamberlain.

I originally thought that we were looking for books released in 2007.

> Powell, Erroll Garner - or any other jazz biography, for that matter, that

> We already have biographies on Pres, Diz, Basie, Billie, Miles (at least
> three), etc.  It's hard to know which of several biographies on Duke or
> Ella, for example, are the best.
