Wisconsin Riffs: Jazz Profiles from the Heartland

Wisconsin Riffs: Jazz Profiles from the Heartland

Kurt Dietrich

  • $ 4000

The gifted music historian Kurt Dietrich has given us a fascinating account of jazz throughout Wisconsin. In this pioneering, one-of-a-kind book, he tells the stories of more than one hundred musicians, ranging from the big names of Bunny Berigan, Woody Herman, Les Paul, and Al Ajarreau to the undeservingly obscure. What emerges is a sense of a rich musical culture that few know about, and an awareness that even more stories should be told. Wisconsin Riffs should inspire books about other states' musical legacies.
