Editorial Reviews

Review

"Turner straddles religions, music, the performance arts, languages, nationalities, and identities skillfully... with aplomb, with brio, in a language all his own that sings." ―Patrick Bellegarde-Smith, University of Wisconsin, Milwaukee



"If you are interested in New Orleans jazz, Voodoo, Haiti, and what underlies these important topics, this is definitely the book to have on hand for frequent reference. The author has done a splendid job, and the reader will find this book a helpful treasure of reading material." ―jazzreview.com



"Jazz Religion, the Second Line, and Black New Orleans is a provocative examination of the role of religion and music in modern American culture with a particular focus on the way that history hasw forced change in complex communities." ―Southern Quarterly



"Turner (Univ. of Iowa) has written an outstanding study of jazz religion and the second line in New Orleans, the 'most African city' in the US. This study is both personal and academic... Highly recomended." ―Choice



"Students of 'popular religion' will find in Turner’s work a fascinating study of a religious tradition flourishing almost entirely outside of institutional boundaries, while those with an interest in the history of jazz or the city of New Orleans will find gems of insight valuable to students of both." ―Journal of Religion and Popular Culture



"A well-written, well-researched, thoughtful, and generative book." ―George Lipsitz, University of California, Santa Barbara

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Having grown up with New Orleans food and culture since I was a baby (my maternal grandparents are New Orleanians) I can attest that this book describes a wonderous part of this city that very few residents actually know about...why? RACIAL FEAR. Because I am white, I was lucky enough to have family and friends both white and black who reveled in celebrating with this culture. I can't imagine not participating in second lines, attending jazz funerals and knowing the joyous, exuberant pleasure that can be found in black Catholic churches. There will never be a city like New Orleans and I am glad that I know it well, love it deeply and will never, ever let any racist, narrow minded fool try to tell me otherwise. I can't recommend this book enough to anyone who has any interest in seeing a wonderful part of New Orleans that they will find welcoming and joyful.
