My rating: 3 of 5 stars
...this book show how barbershop quartet practices relate to the tonality of the blues and how this, in turn, relates to the polyphony of New orleans Jazz....(from the author´s introduction).
This is an essay about a specific jazz, the one played in New Orleans in the '50, so it is a book for expert who wants to explore a not so commonly known part of Jazz.
Saggio sul Jazz suonato a New orleans nei primi anni '50, decisamente per intenditori.
THANKS TO NETGALLEY AND UNIVERSITY PRESS OF MISSISSIPI FOR THE PREVIEW!
