4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By David L. Smith on July 11, 2000
Format: Paperback
Duncan Schiedt's pioneering effort to chronicle Indiana's contribution to jazz is now in it's second printing. He more than complements the meagre information about Indiana and jazz which was previously relegated to brief references to the Wolverines at the Casino Gardens and that Bix Beiderbecke and Frank Trumbauer joined Whiteman there. Jazz great Eddie Condon from Goodland, Indiana is only one of many musicians, Hoosier and otherwise who played in Indianapolis and/or recorded at the famous Gennett studios in Richmond, Indiana. The list of names are a veritable "Who's Who" in jazz. Sheidt knows his subject matter well. The book is loaded with photographs, many of which are Duncan's. After all he made a living for years as a photographer. "The Jazz State of Indiana" is a gem and a must-buy for any devotee of jazz.

Format: Paperback
Rather than providing a chronicle of the development of jazz music in Indiana, this book focuses almost exclusively on early 20th century white dance orchestras in and around Indiana. There are only fleeting references to any post-1930s musicians, bands or venues. If you are looking for information on the heyday of the Indiana Avenue jazz scene, you will not find it in this book. Information on black musicians is sparse, and terminology such as "negro units" is disturbingly inappropriate. I give it 3 stars only because the information it does provide, while often redundant, is well documented and detailed. The references to early dance halls throughout Indiana provide some of the most interesting reading. But a history of the development of jazz in Indiana it is not.
