Editorial Reviews


"A fascinating, exceptionally well-written study of the origins of American jazz criticism and scholarship, both of which turn out to be rooted in the emergence in the early Thirties of the idea of 'authenticity' as a criterion for excellence in jazz. Raeburn, the curator of Tulane University's Hogan Jazz Archive, has probed deeply into the work of the enthusiastic amateur scholars who first sought to document the beginnings of jazz in New Orleans, and his thoughtful account of what they wrought is destined to become one of the standard works in the field."
---Terry Teachout, author of Pops: A Life of Louis Armstrong

Format: Paperback
For anyone interested in jazz history, Raeburn's book is essential reading. It's not a great place to start, but for those who have read at least a couple jazz history books and biographies, Raeburn provides a context for the times and ideologies that have shaped our ever-changing perspective on "what jazz is." The book is impeccably edited, has a great flow and is also a very fun read - full of great anecdotes and information on obscure, important characters. Every fan of traditional jazz should pick this up - you will be glad you did.
