Jazz Personality of the Year

Metronome Magazine

1959

Jean Shepherd is many things to many men. On the radio (WOR - New York) and off-Broadway theater (Look, Charlie), Shepherd in 1958 seemed, from time to time, to be a philosopher, a gifted impromptu monologist, a social satirist. An iconoclast, a comic, a jazz soloist whose words were his instrument. Whatever the role, Shepherd played it well, and as a result, his loyal following grew even larger and more diverse than it had been in previous years. He seemed, certainly, a natural choice for Jazz Personality of the Year.
