As this evocative novel opens, former jazz trumpet star Ronnie Reboulet hasn. this completely blew me out of the water. Shelves: literary fiction. Interesting to read Schneider's first novel after his second. This one is strong, but not nearly as lyrical as Secret Love. The main characters are less sympathetic, at least to me.

Charming but emotionally distant, former jazz great Ronnie Reboulet struggles to make a life free of drugs and outside the music business with the support of his companion, Betty, and his once-estranged daughter, Rae. A first novel. Reprint. 12,500 first printing.
  • Blue Bossa is the story of Ronnie Reboulet, a down and out former jazz musician on the comeback trail.
    A former addict who has been cleaned up and more or less rehabilitated by the woman he's living with, Ronnie hasn't played at all in over five years when the book opens. His estranged daughter, with a grandson in tow, arrives on the scene with the ambition of becoming a singer. Drawn back into the world of music, Ronnie starts playing again, hooks up with a young local musician, and is back in the groove. Unfortunately, the groove leads him back to the addictions that got him in trouble in the first place.
    The book consists of a long series of short, feisty passages portraying his relationship with both his daughter and lover interspersed with a series of flashbacks to his youth working with the greats of the jazz scene of the 1960's and 1970's. These retrospective scenes provide a lively look into that scene and are both extremely informative as well as emmenintly entertaining given the characters involved.
    Ultimately it all comes together for Ronnie-and then proceeds to once again fall apart.
    A novel about the power of love-and it's limitations-the power of music and the source of artistic inspiration, this is a beautiful, heartfelt little gem of a novel any jazz fan is sure to love.

  • This book was recommended to me by Amazon.com because I had bought a jazz cd. At first I was sceptical since I had never before read a "jazz novel," but decided to try it anyway. A quick read with a jazzy flow, "Blue Bossa" did not disappoint.
    "Blue Bossa" is not exactly set in the grandest jazz period in history (it's set in the 1970s), yet it takes you on a virtual tour of jazz history through flashbacks of the life of Ronnie Reboulet, a "retired" trumpet star. Bart Schneider has woven a very intricate tale involving Ronnie's journey out of retirement, his reunion with an estranged daughter & grandson, the subsequent estrangement of his female companion, and the complexities of life in general. The chapters are short & sweet; each one is like an individual note of a song. The end result is a harmonious flow of words that leave you satisfied.
    Certainly recommended for any jazz lover or simply anyone looking to read a great story.

  • If you love sentences and/or jazz circa 1950-70, you will love this book. Read it slowly and savor the author's artful insight to the world of jazz.
