Search - List of Books by Richard Cook

Richard David Cook (7 February 1957 – 25 August 2007) was a British jazz writer, magazine editor and former record company executive.

Sometimes credited as R. D. Cook, Cook was born in Kew, Surrey and lived in west London as an adult. He was co-author, with Brian Morton, of The Penguin Guide to Jazz Recordings (formerly ...on CD), now in its ninth edition. Richard Cook's Jazz Companion and It's About That Time: Miles Davis On and Off the Record were published in 2005.

A writer on music from the late 1970s until his death, he was a prominent contributor to the NME, the jazz critic for The Sunday Times and later a music writer for the New Statesman. Cook was formerly editor of The Wire, when it was a jazz centred periodical (although it broadened its coverage towards the end of his editorship), and edited Jazz Review magazine from its foundation in 1998. Jazz Review continued for a time after his death, using Cook's attitudes as ongoing inspiration and did not name a specific successor (Morton) for six months. Cook also presented a programme on jazz for BBC local radio GLR.

Richard Cook was formerly the UK jazz catalogue manager for PolyGram (1992—97) and also produced albums by the trumpeter Guy Barker. During his spell at PolyGram, Cook launched the short-lived 'Redial' re-issue line of classic British jazz albums. In 2002, he was responsible for issuing a 10 CD limited-edition set by the American avant-garde pianist Cecil Taylor of 1990 recordings, 2Ts for a Lovely T, which was on the Codanza label.

Richard Cook died of cancer on 25 August 2007, aged 50, in London.
