Summary
Tells the searing story of Ludlow Washington, a black jazz musician. Blind since childhood and put into a state home, Ludlow learns the piano and the horn. At fifteen his unmistakable talent takes him to New York, where he becomes a leading, visionary jazz musician. This is the coming of age story of a man set apart--by blindness, by race, by artistry--who must learn through adversity not only who he is and whom to trust, but also from where he derives his self worth
