The New York Daily News raved that Glimmer, Glimmer and Shine is like an evening of good jazzsometimes raucous, sometimes bubbly, but deeply affecting.” Warren Leight once again takes us back to the golden age of jazz. At the height of the big-band era, Glimmer, Glimmer and Shine were seemingly inseparable “brothers in swing,” until their life on the roadfull of drugs, women, and alcoholtore them apart. For thirty-five years secrets have been buried and enmity has simmered. It is only when Daniel Glimmer’s sheltered daughter, Delia, who never knew her father’s illustrious past, has a chance encounter with Eddie Shine’s son, Jordan, that the old comrades in music are forced to confront the wreckage of their past.
