Cats of Any Color: Jazz, Black and White Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In a series of candid interviews with jazz players, composers, and critics, Gene Lees explores racism in the past and present of jazz—both the white racism that for decades ghettoized black musicians and their music, and the prejudice that Lees documents of some black musicians against their white counterparts. With subjects ranging from Horace Silver to Dave Brubeck to Red Rodney, and a new introduction analyzing recent developments, Cats of Any Color chronicles jazz as a multiethnic art.

Synopsis:

Lees is the glowing jewel of jazz for his understanding of it [and] for his writing about it.-Dizzy Gillespie
