Jazz Texts Reprinted by Continuum

There’s nothing quite like reading descriptions of great musicians and important events from people who heard and saw them. Recognizing this, Continuum Books has started a new series called Bayou Jazz Lives, which will bring back into print some of the most outstanding examples of firsthand testimony about the history of jazz and blues.

The series will present biographies and autobiographies, with an emphasis on the latter category. While the texts themselves are accessible to casual jazz listeners, the extensive annotations and discographies in many of the books will make them useful to scholars as well.
