Louis Armstrong, Duke Ellington, And Miles Davis (eBook)
A Twentieth-Century Transnational Biography
Sobre o livro
This book examines Louis Armstrong, Duke Ellington, and Miles Davis as distinctively global symbols of threatening and nonthreatening black masculinity. It centers them in debates over U.S. cultural exceptionalism, noting how they have been part of the definition of jazz as a jingoistic and exclusively American form of popular culture.
