Bruce Crowther
For many years he has written books and 45 will have been published by the end of 2019. More than half of these are crime fiction, the non-fiction books are mainly on cinema and jazz. Long ago there were a few television plays and more recently a stage play. For a number of years he worked with Colin Larkin on his Encyclopedia of Popular Music and the BTOE, contributing 5-6000 entries to these projects. His first Jazz Journal article was in the mid-1970s, record reviews beginning a decade later. His jazz books include a biography of Gene Krupa and three books in collaboration with Mike Pinfold: The Jazz Singers, The Big Band Years and Singing Jazz. Other than jazz, he enjoys the blues, opera, old country, gospel, R&B, and popular songs of the 1930s and 40s.
