This biography tells trumpeter Joe Wilder's remarkable story, from his growing up in working-class Philadelphia to his achievements in the worlds of jazz, classical, and popular music. Wilder is also known as a pioneer who broke down racial barriers, the first African American to hold a principal chair in a Broadway show orchestra, and one of the first African Americans to join a network studio orchestra. Reminiscences by Wilder and his colleagues place Wilder's experiences within a broader context of American musical and social history.
