It’s the Roaring Twenties, and New York is exploding with jazz fever. Designed, illustrated, and edited by Robert Nippoldt, this award-winning book pays homage to the era. An entertaining blend of illustrations, facts, and amusing anecdotes presents 24 leading lights of New York’s jazz scene in the 1920s, complete with a CD containing some of their best songs. The texts, contributed by Hans-Jürgen Schaal, give a vivid account of the club scene and the “band battles,” as well as the legendary recording sessions.
