About this product
- DescriptionNew York City has always been a mecca in the history of jazz, and in many ways the city's jazz scene is more important w than ever before. Blowin' the Blues Away examines how jazz has thrived in New York following its popular resurgence in the 1980s. Using interviews, in-person observation, and analysis of live and recorded events, ethmusicologist Travis A. Jackson explores both the ways in which various participants in the New York City jazz scene interpret and evaluate performance, and the criteria on which those interpretations and evaluations are based. Through the tes and words of its most accomplished performers and most ardent fans, jazz appears t simply as a musical style, but as a cultural form intimately influenced by and influential upon American concepts of race, place, and spirituality.
