Description: Musicologist Charles Quinlan, white, in his forties, college educated, has spent years immersed in jazz, and now he thinks he is ready to explain the life and work of Jackson Payne, the tormented, obsessive legend of mid-century American Jazz. As he sets about researching Payne's career, he is sure that the music will get him past the accidents of birth that so deeply divide his own experience from his subject.

Jackson Payne arrived on the scene a fully formed jazz artist not long after returning from service in the Korean War. For two decades his tenor saxophone burned through musical ideas. And then he flamed out. What drove him? What destroyed him? And is it possible for a white college professor like Quinlan to get beyond race and poverty to an understanding of a figure like Payne?

In his quest, Quinlan listens to men who served beside Payne in combat, the women who slept with him and believed his lies, the musicians who shared his addiction to hard bop and heroin. He discovers the family secrets that tortured Payne, the musical and spiritual doubts that haunted him. And in the end he begins to fathom not only the depths of Payne's obsessions but also of his own.

Jack Fuller's novel, The Best of Jackson Payne, works like the music it embraces. The voices of people close to Payne move in and out of the foreground like horns blowing solos in a dark nightclub. Together they tell a story of the extraordinary individuals who created America's greatest indigenous art form and of the forces they had to battle along the way.
