The poster depicts an extensive and intricate jazz family tree dating back to the turn of the century and all-inclusive of the many tributaries and diffrent movements that have made jazz what it is"

"but this labor of love is rather extraordinary and would make a perfect gift for anyone, including yourself"

"Peter von Bartkowski´s stationery says ..." Nobody is perfect..." and indeed some will argue with where who is and who ain´t there all) on his 27" X 40" poster Highlights of the Jazz Story in USA, but unarguably lays out enough history to provide a framework which will be useful to neophyte and intermediate afficionados. There are oodles of tiny photos but it´s mostly verbal, in a roots, trunk and branches format. Quite a tree.
