A work of fiction set in the form of a journal kept by a pilot in 1947, & housed in a unique metal slipcase. The journal entries date from Aug. 2, 1946 through Oct. 27, 1949. They record the reflections of a jazz musician about his experiences & the people he met while playing in France after World War I, & his reminiscences about such jazz greats as Charlie Parker and Dizzy Gillespie. Aerobleu refers to a club in Paris in the late 1940s notorious for its all-night jam sessions & its enigmatic owner, Max Morgan. Drawn by a feverish mix of music & martinis, Janet Flanner, Hemingway, Picasso, & Bogart all flocked to hear the best jazz this side of Harlem.
