Longtime friend, music collector, and fellow Floraphile David Burd reports a first sighting:
The new Flora book is in stores today! I just picked up my copy.
We expected the book to hit streets in mid-August. That's what happens when you work with a niche publisher—they surprise on the upside. (Note: Amazon.com lists a release date of July 29, 2009.)
Illustration of celebratory Benny Goodman (above): not in this book. It appeared in our second book.
