Summary/Review: "A swinging, good-humored stylist, O'Day rose to fame as a vocalist with the Gene Krupa Big Band ('Let Me Off Uptown') and the Stan Kenton Band ('And Her Tears Flowed Like Wine') in the 1940s before she became a successful solo act in the 1950s--punctuated by her energetic performance at the 1958 Newport Jazz Festival ... Unfortunately, O'Day was as well known for her drug problems as her jazz singing, and in [this book she] offers an unvarnished personal account of her life, as well as a behind-the-scenes look at the golden age of jazz"--Publisher marketing.
