This blog will be used to post the highlights of my research on jazz, especially the role of jazz during the World War II era. Coming soon will be short biographical excerpts on certain musicians and bandleaders of that era, along with musical excerpts and maps showing the locations of the hotspots of jazz during the war. Like learning about jazz? Like learning about people like Glenn Miller and Django Reinhardt? Then stay tuned! I will also post on particularly interesting things going on in the jazz world today.
