Latin Jazz : The Other Jazz, Paperback / softback Book

Paperback / softback

  • Information


Jazz has always been a genre built on the blending of disparate musical cultures.

Latin jazz illustrates this perhaps better than any other style in this rich tradition, yet its cultural heritage has been all but erased from narratives of jazz history.

Told from the perspective of a long-time jazz insider, Latin Jazz: The Other Jazz corrects the record, providing a historical account that embraces the genre's international nature and explores the dynamicinterplay of economics, race, ethnicity, and nationalism that shaped it.
