The birthplace of Duke Ellington, D.C. has always had a thriving jazz scene, with world-class clubs, musicians, and promoters supported by institutions ranging from the Smithsonian and the Historical Society of Washington to local schools, churches, and informal associations. All this and more is celebrated in this vibrant collection of profiles, memories, poems, and photos. Edited by Maurice Jackson and Blair A. Ruble, authors of Let This Voice be Heard and Washington's U Street, respectively, the anthology covers the early days of D.C. jazz, traces the role the music played in integrating the city, and spotlights the cultural hotbed of Seventh and U Streets. Contributors Bridget A. Arnwine, member of the Jazz Journalists Association, and Judith Korey, professor of music at the UDC and head of the Felix Grant Jazz Archives, will join the editors to discuss the rich past and future of jazz in D.C.
