    The office of the American presidency is one of the most storied in history, equaling that of older monarchies in both richness and scope. For nearly years, the residents of Pennsylvania Avenue have inspired admiration, provoked outrage—and everything .   Famed producer Quincy Jones was born Quincy Delight Jr. on Ma , in Chicago, Illinois. A multifaceted jazz and pop figure, his career began when he played trumpet and arranged for Lionel.

    In Miles: The Autobiography the trumpeter Miles Davis remembers his excitement at hearing the Billy Eckstine Orchestra, with Charlie Parker and Dizzy Gillespie, in a St. Louis nightclub in Quincy Jones' autobiography 'Q' is very good. Because he's a master at music, he's one of our greatest composers, and its good for him to have a book and tell the good ole days when he was with Duke Ellington, Count Basie, Sarah Vaughan and Ray Charles.

      The Lost Founding Father: John Quincy Adams and the Transformation of American Politics by William J. Cooper—This new biography argues that John Adams’s less famous son has been sidelined by history and should be honored as a founding father alongside his predecessors.. American Lion: Andrew Jackson in the White House by Jon Meacham—Winner of the Pulitzer Prize, this book . For example, the FDR biographies you reviewed and the ranked order of those books is spot on. For Thomas Jefferson, I think an important brief book to add to your list is “Thomas Jefferson” by R.B. Bernstein. A brief biography of this character, who I understand and love (despite his shortcomings), is nearly impossible. I loved this brief book.
