From Jazz to Swing,

In the 1920s, there were many black regional jazz bands
that were recorded and became products of the
entertainment industry.

Hennessey makes use of the files of African American newspapers
like Chicago Defender as well as published and
archival oral history interviews. This books showcases
the contradictions that our Black people faced as musicians
and being the products of differing regional experiences.

From Jazz to Swing follows jazz from the beginning in
the regional black music of the turn of the century in
New Orleans, Chicago, and New YOrk, and the
territories that make up the rest of the country.
