Vinnie's Book Vol. 3

The Finish Line. 1971-1979. These pages were never in actual bound-book form, they were all single pages. These were the ones that were copied endlessly and passed around for a generation. "Philly" Joe was living at Vinnie's for a time in 1971 and they (together) cranked out several of these pages. Topics covered: The "Billy Boy" fours, the "Mama G" fours, Art Blakey, Billy Higgins, with a focus on "Philly" Joe's soloing. 94 Pages.
