I've been reading David Goodis' DARK PASSAGE and noticed his frequent references to jazz (Count Basie, especially). Is this a theme running through his noir books?

************** Al would be the one to answer that. I know he is a big Goodis fan. I don't recall any specific references in Shoot the Piano Player or Cassidy's Girl. I'm wanting to read Dark Passage so I can check out the movie. Let me know how you like it.
