Mama Said There'd Be Days Like This-My Lifein the Jazz World. This is not one ofthose. At the outset of her book, music journalist and photographer Val Wilmer states the terms on which she offers us the story of her life in jazz: 'People often write autobiogra-phies as if they had no mother, no children, as if sexual love had passed them by. The book then proceeds in an un-ashamedly anecdotal way; it would be perverse to read it in hope of theory, and worse to judge it thereby. The refreshingly unembellished detail of South London in the fifties provides us with an idea ofthe physi-cal, social and musical environment of her growth.
The 13-digit and 10-digit formats both work. The last chapter sort of fizzles out with her rambling -on and almost random thoughts & muses about her current situation and feelings.

The bandstand may briefly seem, as Heckstall-Smith describes it, to be ‘The Safest Place in the World’, but by the end of this book it begins to feel like a Hieronymus Bosch hell.
