Jazz From Detroit

Mark Stryker’s Jazz from Detroit refocuses attention on the city’s influential role as one of the most prolific breeding grounds for innovative jazz musicians and front-rank stylists. It is the first book to explore Detroit’s pivotal role in shaping the course of modern and contemporary jazz from the 1940s until the present day.
Stryker digs into the lives of 26 Detroit-bred musicians on and off the bandstand and their impact on jazz. He shows how Detroit became a vital center for modern jazz and produced influential musicians for generation after generation.
