Ohio Jazz: A History of Jazz in the Buckeye State [NOOK Book]

Overview

The history of jazz is largely the story of a few key cities--none in Ohio. As a result, most jazz historians give short shrift to the Buckeye State, regarding it as a go-through rather than a go-to place.

Overview

The history of jazz is largely the story of a few key cities--none in Ohio. As a result, most jazz historians give short shrift to the Buckeye State, regarding it as a go-through rather than a go-to place. However, the fact is that jazz has been practiced in Ohio and with a vengeance. For thirty years, these authors have been researching and documenting the history of music, particularly jazz in Ohio. Their 1999 "Jazz Ohio!" exhibit at the Ohio Historical Society ran for twelve months before portions of it were moved to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. The exhibit inspired this book, and much of what you will read here has never before been brought together in one place--and it may well change the way you think about jazz. And Ohio.

Meet the Author

The authors of Ohio Jazz: A History of Jazz in the Buckeye State previously collaborated on Columbus, The Musical Crossroads (Arcadia, 2008) and Listen for the Jazz: Key Notes in Columbus History (Arts Foundation of Olde Towne, 1990 92). David Meyers has spent nearly thirty years documenting the history of music in central Ohio and was formerly host of Bring 'Em Back Alive, a weekly radio program on local music history. An artist and community activist, Candice Watkins is a driving force behind two of the city's largest annual music festivals: Hot Times and ComFest.
Arnett Howard, arguably the best-known musician in Columbus, has devoted much of the past three decades to interviewing many of the pioneering jazz musicians in the community. And James Loeffler, former publisher of the Antique Review, is a well-known collector of jazz recordings and is a board member and former president of the Central Ohio Hot Jazz Society.
