This is the guy that sold herb to Louis Armstrong isn't it?
I think I'll check this one out - I see they've got a copy at Amazon.

If your interested in reading any other Jazz stuff & like Kerouac I'd reccomend "Straight Life" by Art Pepper. Art was the real thing, the genuine article and this is straight from the proverbial horses mouth.

Incidentally, I read somewhere that Mezzrow was dealing so much weed to Jazzers that they started calling spliffs "Mezzrows". No kidding.
