Willie ‘Bunk’ Johnson was one of the most controversial, and divisive, musicians in jazz history. Even today, few are lukewarm on the subject of Bunk’s musical ability, his biographical details and his personality. All agree, however, that he was the central figure of the New Orleans Revival of the 1940s.

Bunk Johnson confused Jazz historians for years by lying about almost everything, but nevertheless he was an early Jazz pioneer who apparently played in bands led by Buddy Bolden. He definitely played in Frankie Dusen's Eagle Band, The Superior Orchestra and with Clarence Williams. They managed to track Bunk down in New Iberia, Louisiana where he was living, and interviewed him for the book. Bunk lied about a great many things, including his birth date, so that it would look like he had been one of the first Jazz musicians.

Willie Gary "Bunk" Johnson (December 27, 1879 – July 7, 1949) was a prominent jazz trumpeter in New Orleans. Johnson gave the year of his birth as 1879, although there is speculation that he may have been younger by as much as a decade

Willie Gary "Bunk" Johnson (December 27, 1879 – July 7, 1949) was a prominent jazz trumpeter in New Orleans. Johnson gave the year of his birth as 1879, although there is speculation that he may have been younger by as much as a decade. Johnson received lessons from Adam Olivier and began playing professionally in Olivier's orchestra. Johnson probably played a few adolescent jobs with Buddy Bolden, but was not a regular member of Bolden's Band (contrary to Johnson's claim)

This unusual biography of trumpeter Bunk Johnson brings to life a man, an era, and an area that made significant contributions to the history of American Jazz. Covering Bunk's musical and non-musical years from his birth in 1880 in New Orleans to his death in New Iberia, Louisiana, in 1949, the book provides an intimate look at his life and times - his years of traveling with bands and minstrels, and playing with groups in the small Louisiana towns outside of New Orleans through the twenties, and his rediscovery by jazz historians in the late thirties that led to new prominence and the recordings of the forties which captured his play for posterity. Here are the men and women with whom Buck played, the bands he worked for. The author has recaptured the past and an important part of jazz tradition that is often overlooked. The book is illustrated with rare an unusual photographs, and a complete discography gives detailed information on all of Bunk's recorded work. There are transcriptions of some Bunk Johnson solos, and brief biographies of fellow musicians and listings of personnel in many of the groups he played with.
