The Rise of a Jazz Art World

The Rise of a Jazz Art World Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The origins of jazz were in the barrelhouses of New Orleans and the speakeasies of Chicago. By the nineteen fifties, a musical renaissance transformed jazz into a high art form. Paul Lopes shows how the rise of a jazz art world was a unique movement--a socially diverse community of musicians, critics, collectors, producers, and enthusiasts that struggled in various ways against cultural orthodoxy in America. This accessible, interdisciplinary book will be of great interest to scholars and students of sociology, cultural studies, American studies, African-American studies, and jazz studies.

Synopsis:

A unique sociological vision of the evolution of jazz music in the twentieth century.
