“Book Bit” with Doc Kirby on The Ghetto Swinger by Coco Schumann

Book Bit with Doc Kirby, WTBF

“… Schumann got to play with legendary jazzers like Dizzy Gillespie, Louis Armstrong, & Ella Fitzgerald. He played in movies and on TV, his compositions were hits, and he owned and ran a nightclub. He even got involved with a political campaign. He did some cruise ship gigs, taught at the Zehlendorf Academy, and they will be making a movie about his extraordinary life and career.

His story is inspiring and profound, yet told with a youthful whimsy. Coco Schumann is the very best jazz guitarist you need to know.”
