  2. Hey, So I'm interested in picking up the huge Ellington Centennial Box Set. There are a few copies floating out there right now, but I thought I'd check here first to see if anyone here has a copy they are interested in trading or selling. Send me a PM if that is the case.

  4. Thanks! Yeah, I'm not yet 100 percent on Birth of Bebop. I agree that the stuff on Hawkins is out of proportion but I like the way the book is written. So I'm not sure on that one yet. I am sure on Notes and Tones and Blues People, both books that I think will provoke a lot of discussion, and I'm almost certainly going to assign the Feld book on Jazz in Accra and the Muller book on Sathima Bea Benjamin, because I want the course to be transnational and I think both of those books do a good job of illustrating those connections. I'm also thinking about Robin D.G. Kelley's book Africa Speaks, America Answers, although I think the Feld book might cover some of those themes better than Kelley does. I haven't read Erenberg or Stowe, I will definitely be checking them out.
  5. So next semester for the first time I am teaching an upper-level undergraduate course on the History of Jazz. In a way it is an offshoot of a course I currently offer on black music more generally, which has a strong focus on using music as a window into social, cultural, and political history. To supplement lecture material, I like assigning monographs, biographies, autobiographies, or even novels that explore themes related to the course and that are intended to provoke discussion and debate. I've been trying to put my course readings together and have identified some texts I want to assign, but there's a gap in material where I don't really have much on pre-1940s music. So if you guys have any suggestions on books to assign that would cover early jazz history, please leave them here. To get a sense, these are the texts I have identified as potential readings for the course so far (I won't use all of these necessarily but it's the list I'm working with right now): Leroi Jones -- Blues People Scott DeVeaux -- The Birth of Bebop Art Taylor -- Notes and Tones John Szwed -- Space is the Place Valerie Wilmer -- As Serious As Your Life Steven Feld -- Jazz Cosmopolitanism in Accra Carols Ann Muller -- Musical Echoes: South African Women Thinking in Jazz I've also considered using the George Lewis book on the AACM, but am worried it's too long and dry. I've also thought about Linda Dahl's book on Jazz Women. Thanks in advance for any suggestions you have.
  6. If you have this, and are interested in trading or selling your copy, please send me a PM. Thanks!

  13. I am looking for the Ike Quebec Complete 45 Blue Note Sessions, either the BN Conn or the Mosaic. Interested in either trade or sale. PM if you are interested!
  14. Update with some price drops on the remaining box sets.
  15. Just finished this book and I very much recommend it. I'd say it's my favorite of all the jazz memoirs I've read. Definitely better than the Art Pepper book, which mostly just depressed the hell out of me.
  16. Bump up...I still have these available. PM if interested!
