Jazz is a history of jazz and its reception in the black community in
the period from the end of World War II until the end of the Vietnam
War. Previous histories reflect the perspective of an integrated
America, yet the United States was a segregated country in 1945. The
black audience had a very different take on the music and that is the
perception explored in Soul Jazz.
