"Reed All About It ... is an amazing journey into the inner lives of the musicians that create the music we love. ... Bernotas, who is also a musician, has an incredible knack as an interviewer of being able to converse with musicians on their level. ... I highly recommend this book to all saxophonists, music students, jazz lovers, and music educators as well."
