West Coast Jazz: Modern Jazz in California, 1945-1960


Stanford jazz promoter Ted Gioia provides a definitive account of the 1950's rise of California onto the jazz scene. Drawing on years of research and numerous first-hand interviews, Gioia tells the full story of West Coast jazz, from its early stirrings in the heart of LA's post-WWII black culture to its decline after 1960. His love of the music shines on every page.
