Review “Good Things Happen Slowly”

Good Things Happen Slowly: A Life in and Out of JazzGood Things Happen Slowly: A Life in and Out of Jazz by Fred Hersch

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I know nothing about jazz, but wanted to read this book because of Hersch’s medical story. I ended up learning more about jazz and liking that part of the book. I also enjoyed his perspective on the AIDS/HIV crisis in the early 80s and what it was like to come out as a gay jazz musician. The medical areas of the book are quite slim, but still interesting. I also enjoyed reading about the creative process behind some of his work.

All in all this is an honest and thoughtful memoir.
