Collection of essays on the role of gender in jazz studies.
Reviews provided by Syndetics
CHOICE ReviewFifty years ago, many people (women as well as men) had trouble getting used to women in jazz. And to some degree this prejudice still exists. These essays explore many issues of gender in jazz, covering a wide range from a variety of viewpoints, illuminating the past and looking at the present and possible future of jazz. Although 13 of the 15 contributors are women, the editors rightly point out that considering gender issues in jazz is not women's work. The essays include an excellent appraisal of pianist Lil Hardin Armstrong's work with Louis Armstrong's legendary Hot Five in the 1920s and a discussion of a recent tribute to that group by Wynton Marsalis, who failed to mention a woman at the piano. The contributors dig in the subject through discussions of records, concerts, film, and fiction, with forays into issues of masculinity, female "hysteria," and race. The primary focus is the US, with occasional explorations of international jazz. The academic style limits the readership to serious students of jazz (and readers in other disciplines). These essays should have a real impact on an area of jazz studies that deserves more attention. Summing Up: Highly recommended. Upper-division undergraduates through faculty. C. M. Weisenberg formerly, University of California, Los Angeles
