Summary

When most people think of Detroit and music, they think of the Motown sound. But what many people forget is that Detroit has a remarkable jazz history, which was a major influence on what later became known as the Motown Sound.

Before Motown is the first book about the history of jazz in Detroit. It shows the significant impact Detroit has had on the development of jazz in America, starting with the big bands of the 1920s, with groups like McKinney's Cotton Pickers and Jean Goldkette's orchestra, and continuing into the 1950s, when Detroit experienced a golden age of modern jazz centered around clubs like the Blue Bird Inn. The jazz scene comes alive in interviews with musicians and club owners, combined with unique period photographs and advertisements. In addition, Detroit's vital jazz scene is placed in its social context, particularly with regard to changing relations between blacks and whites.
