Summary

''Black Music, White Business probes the principal contradiction in the jazz world: that between black artistry on the one hand and white ownership of the means of jazz distribution - the recording companies, booking agencies, festivals, nightclubs and magazines - on the other.'' ''Drawing on a wide variety of sources as well as his own experiences, Frank Kofsky brings to light the exploitation to which jazz creators historically have been subjected and the racist contempt with which many industry executives view jazz.''--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
