    An excellent scholarly study that shows that Jazz was indeed a collaborative effort It debunks the myth that white musicians brought nothing to the jazz table a notion that simply wasn't supported by the existing 78 rpm recordings made by these musicians Many of the musical examples cited are also available on a companion CD also well worth seeking out The author was also a musician and used his knowledge of written music to illustrate many of the musical ideas that are discussed in the book

    Exhaustive reference book on the 'white' involvment in America's only homegrown art form THE reference book on the topic and for those interested compulsively readable It helps greatly to be able to hear the music that is being discussed but as is so often the case choice tracks are not commerically available and come from private colletionsa CD colletion apparently is available but never pursued by this reader Sudhalter is also a musician cornet which elevates this work above the merely academic

    This is NOT a racist book it simply fills in the details about white musicians that are skipped in most jazz history books Sudhalter was a professional jazz musician whose writing was superb
