"Eschewing traditional musicological jazz criticism, Nicholas Evans focuses his study on written accounts of jazz to reveal the music's broader cultural significations during the second and third decades of the twentieth century. Rather than redefining jazz, Evans analyzes what people thought and felt when they came into contact with it." -- American Literature
