Editorial Reviews

About the Author

Drawing on his experience as a pianist, historian, and lecturer concentrated on ragtime and early jazz, Detroit-based journalist Jon Milan provides a rare look at this important period in the city’s musical heritage. For the first time, this book brings together photographs, postcards, and artifacts from the author’s collection, many private collections, and materials from the E. Azalia Hackley and Burton Historical Collections of the Detroit Public Library, opening a long-lost window on an important period in the history of Detroit and its role in the development of American music.

3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By John A. Rutherford on May 30, 2009
Format: Paperback
A well researched and documented account of Ragtime and Jazz in Detroit, roughly covering the 1870s - the early 1940s. Great photos and lots of unique facts...i.e. Tommy Dorsey's first recording session was at the Detroit Athletic Club.
