One of the four essays in A.B. Spellman's Four Lives in the Bebop Business (also known as Four Jazz Lives, ) is about Nichols. A biography, Herbie Nichols: A Jazzist's Life, written by Mark Miller, was published in Bebop, the first manifestation of modern jazz, ‘Lies at the midpoint of what has become known as the jazz tradition bebop is the point at which our contemporary ideas of jazz come into focus’ (DeVeaux, ). By the early s, the music was changing again, largely as a result of what was known as The New Thing, The New Wave, or Free Jazz.

Africa Speaks, America Answers: Modern Jazz In Revolutionary Times nods explicitly to A.B. Spellman’s classic Four Lives In The Bebop Business as it examines the intersection of American-bred jazz and the traditional music of Africa. Coleman's early life and career is A. B. Spellman's Four Lives in the Bebop Business (New York: Pantheon Books, ) reprinted as Black Music: Four Lives (New York: Schocken Books, ). The majority of jazz histories and journal articles about Coleman merely recycle information originally located in this informative and entertaining book. 5.

Brooks’s deeper insights about business are just as relevant today as they were back then. In terms of its longevity, Business Adventures stands alongside Benjamin Graham’s The Intelligent Investor, the book that Warren says is the best book .
