Book Description University of South Carolina Press, United States, 2008. Hardback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. This book offers an oral history of musical genres from the Palmetto state musicians who helped define the sounds.From Jabbo Smith, Dizzy Gillespie, and Drink Small to Johnny Helms, Dick Goodwin, and Chris Potter, South Carolina has been home to an impressive number of well-known jazz and blues musicians. Through richly detailed interviews with 19 South Carolina musicians, Franklin presents an oral history of the tradition and influence of jazz and the blues in the Palmetto State.Franklin takes as his subjects a range of musicians born between 1905 and 1971, representing every decade in between, to trace the progression of these musical genres from Tommy Benford s and Jabbo Smith s first recording sessions in the summer of 1926 to the present day. Diverse not only in age but also in race, gender, instruments, and style, these musicians exemplify the breadth of jazz and blues performers from South Carolina.In their own colorful words, the performers recall their love affairs with the distinctive sounds of jazz and blues, indoctrinations into the musical word, early gigs, life on the tour bus, fans, drugs, military service, amateur night at the Apollo Theater, and influential friendships with other well-known musicians. As the story of South Carolina musical scene is tightly interwoven with that of the nation, these narratives also include appearances by Tony Bennett, Miles Davis, Count Basie, Herman Lubinsky, Helen Merrill, Pharoah Sanders, Sister Rosetta Tharpe, and other significant musicians.
