📒Girls Don T Like Real Jazz ✍ Walter Kolosky
✏Girls Don t Like Real Jazz Book Summary : Girls Don?t Like Real Jazz is the funniest book ever written about jazz and its place of importance in American culture. But, GDLRJ is neither just funny nor just for American jazz fans. It is for anyone concerned that the United States is losing its cultural identity. The declining jazz business in America should be seen as a canary in a coal mine for our nation's overall decline. Jazz is being squeezed out by a modern culture that is turning its back on its own rich history. Through stories and suggestions on how to save jazz from impending doom, jazz writer and social commentator Walter Kolosky argues that the loss of jazz is a foreign policy issue. To let its American roots die away is tantamount to treason in Kolosky?s opinion. That being said, the author believes that if the ship is destined to go down, we may as well have a few laughs with our salt water. The author is hopeful that maybe we can bail fast enough. GDLRJ is a guide book for jazz fans and other socially conscious individuals to use in a battle to help save jazz. Use it wisely.ISBN 0-9761016-0-2
📒To A Young Jazz Musician ✍ Wynton Marsalis
✏To a Young Jazz Musician Book Summary : In To a Young Jazz Musician, the renowned jazz musician and Pulitzer Prize—winning composer Wynton Marsalis gives us an invaluable guide to making good music–and to leading a good life. Writing from the road “between the bus ride, the sound check, and the gig,” Marsalis passes on wisdom gained from experience, addressed to a young musician coming up–and to any of us at any stage of life. He writes that having humility is a way to continue to grow, to listen, and to learn; that patience is necessary for developing both technical proficiency and your own art rather than an imitation of someone else’s; and that rules are indispensable because “freedom lives in structure.” He offers lessons learned from his years as a performer and from his great forebears Duke Ellington, Charlie Parker, and others; he explores the art of swing; he discusses why it is important to run toward your issues, not away; and he talks about what to do when your integrity runs up against the lack thereof in others and in our culture. He poetically expresses our need for healers: “All of it tracks back to how you heal your culture, one patient at a time, beginning with yourself.” This is a unique book, in which a great artist offers his personal thoughts, both on jazz and on how to live a better, more original, productive, and meaningful life. To a Young Jazz Musician is sure to be treasured by readers young and old, musicians, lovers of music, and anyone interested in being mentored by one of America’s most influential, generous, and talented artists. From the Hardcover edition.

She must find her own way through the tangled web of difficulties she faces everyday, and her music becomes her refuge. Gradually, though, Mary learns that music is more than just an escape from her problems. By losing herself in her extraordinary musical creativity, she grapples with her inner demons and discovers the true power of her special gifts.

📒The Curious Case Of Benjamin Button And Other Jazz Age Stories ✍ F. Scott Fitzgerald
✏The Curious Case of Benjamin Button and Other Jazz Age Stories Book Summary : The inspiration for the major motion picture starring Brad Pitt and Cate Blanchett, plus eighteen other stories by the beloved author of The Great Gatsby In the title story of this collection by one of America’s greatest writers, a baby born in 1860 begins life as an old man and proceeds to age backward. F. Scott Fizgerald hinted at this kind of inversion when he called his era “a generation grown up to find all Gods dead, all wars fought, all faiths in man shaken.” Perhaps nowhere in American fiction has this “Lost Generation” been more vividly preserved than in Fitzgerald’s short fiction. Spanning the early twentieth-century American landscape, this original collection captures, with Fitzgerald’s signature blend of enchantment and disillusionment, America during the Jazz Age.
