Cadence Magazine is an authoritative voice in jazz with an extensive readership. One of the few publications that is only available in print, it is mainly available by subscription or at your local news stand. Their independent voice is recognized as serving the community of and not their advertisers, so reviews can be considered reliable and impartial. We were thrilled to have such a great review of Dr. Botek’s book.

Cadence Magazine

“Superficially less ambitious but more satisfying is a Jazz memoir by STEPHEN T. BOTEK, a New York psychiatrist born in 1929, SONG ON MY LIPS: Jazz Greats Were My Mentors (Granville Island Publishing, 2008, 352 pages). In books on Jazz, I take pleasure in first-hand experience, cogently presented. A writer who was there is a rare and delightful personage indeed.

. . . Botek reminds me much more of the young James Joyce’s alter ego, Stephen Dedalus, finding himself as an artist.” [excerpt]
