5.0 out of 5 stars Occupy Jazz/History, July 25, 2012

This review is from: Ten Freedom Summers (4CD) (Audio CD)
A monumental achievement. Very gratifying to see Wadada methodically delineate in his titles the direct revolutionary connection--a connection that always exists but is rarely made explicit--between the jazz avant-garde and the history of the (ongoing) struggle for social justice in America. It would be nice if this set included, say, a 60-page booklet that filled in this history in detail for those with little background in this area, but at under $24 for a four-disc set--which is even cheaper than the download, for some reason--this is not even a quibble. Hats off to Cuneiform, Wadada, and all the musicians for making this an eleventh freedom summer.

Hi TSK, just read through the first 26pp of your thesis.. great job! very informative and entertaining for someone interested in both jazz and politics. And now i'm going back through my David S. Ware CDs :) I look forward to reading the rest

Yes, sorry, I've taken the thesis off Academia; I'm planning to sell a revised version with a new epilogue on KDP. And I should note coming up May 1-3 at Roulette in Brooklyn is the complete Ten Freedom Summers. A perfect May Day celebration! Nix that: revised thesis back on Academia, it's available free, will not be sold at this time.

Thanks, I am most definitely noting your email address. When it's published, it'll be in the Amazon book listings, of course, and I'll link it from Academia.

The link is once again active. The revised version of A History of Federal Jazz Policy is available as a PDF.
