Review

"Ohio Jazz: A History of Jazz in the Buckeye State" takes an extensive look at Ohio's role in jazz music. --Jeff Barron, Lancaster Eagle Gazette

About the Author

The authors of Ohio Jazz: A History of Jazz in the Buckeye State previously collaborated on Columbus, The Musical Crossroads (Arcadia, 2008) and Listen for the Jazz: Key Notes in Columbus History (Arts Foundation of Olde Towne, 1990 92). David Meyers has spent nearly thirty years documenting the history of music in central Ohio and was formerly host of Bring 'Em Back Alive, a weekly radio program on local music history. An artist and community activist, Candice Watkins is a driving force behind two of the city's largest annual music festivals: Hot Times and ComFest.

Arnett Howard, arguably the best-known musician in Columbus, has devoted much of the past three decades to interviewing many of the pioneering jazz musicians in the community. And James Loeffler, former publisher of the Antique Review, is a well-known collector of jazz recordings and is a board member and former president of the Central Ohio Hot Jazz Society.

More About the Author

David Meyers is a lifelong resident of Columbus, Ohio. A graduate of Miami University and The Ohio State University, he worked for thirty years in adult and juvenile corrections. As a local historian, he got his start with the late Robert D. "Bob" Thomas, assisting with the three volume "Columbus Unforgettables" series. He also contributed to "Listen for the Jazz," published by the Arts Foundation of Olde Towne.

Since then, he has written a number of books on local history, as well as works for the stage, including the musicals "The Last Christmas Carol" and "The Last Oz Story." In 2012, David appeared on an episode of the Discovery Canada series "Curious and Unusual Deaths," to discuss the death of Ohio Penitentiary inmate Charles Justice. A novelization of "The Last Christmas Carol" was published with illustrations by Sam Walker. A second novel, "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow Condominium Association, Inc." features illustrations by Jason Pauff.

David continues to publish one or two books a year on a wide range of topics.

Format: Paperback
This is an informative and interesting book on just how much Ohio musicians did contribute to jazz. Ohio was geographically in a prime location for jazz bands traveling from New York to Chicago to stop off and perform en route, too. In addition to enjoying reading the book... and recognizing more than a few Ohio natives who later became nationally known artists; I liked the sixty bios in the back of the book as well. The period photos add a grand touch to the late nineteenth-early twentieth century feeling of the book. Chapter notes are easy to follow. An excellent holiday gift choice for the reader, musician, jazz lover,history buff, Buckeye, or anyone else on your list.
