Bob Gibson and Reggie Jackson offer a candid and unfiltered look at America's pastime, discussing the art of pitching, the art of hitting, and all things baseball. Full of brush-backs, walk-off homeruns, high stakes, cold stares, epic battles, and a little chin music here and there, Sixty Feet, Six Inches is a baseball fan’s dream come true, a go to guide for how the game should be played. There is no part of the sport that these two titans do not discuss at length: big picture issues like how steroids have affected the game and handling the pressure of stardom, right next to exact descriptions of the mechanics of pitching and hitting.

Not only was Fats Waller one of the greatest pianists jazz has ever known, he was also one of its most exuberantly funny entertainers – and as so often happens, one facet tends to obscure the other. His extraordinarily light and flexible touch belied his ample physical girth; he could swing as hard as any pianist alive or dead in his classic James P. Johnson-derived stride manner, with a powerful left hand delivering the octaves and tenths in a tireless, rapid, seamless stream. ~ AllMusic
