Overview

The Creation of Jazz: Music, Race, and Culture in Urban America by Burton W. Peretti

As musicians, listeners, and scholars have sensed for many years, the story of jazz is more than a history of the music. Peretti presents a fascinating account of how the racial and cultural dynamics of American cities created the music, life, and business that was jazz.
