This entertaining guide leads readers to hallowed jazz sites in four neighborhoods: Montmartre, Montparnasse, Saint-Germain-des-Prés, and the area around the Champs-Élysées. Readers can visit the clubs made famous by jazz greats such as Louis Armstrong, Sidney Bechet, Duke Ellington, Stephane Grappelli, and the beloved gypsy guitarist Django Reinhardt, as well as the hotels and apartments where they lived. Evocative black-and-white photographs recreate the glamour of the Jazz Age, when Josephine Baker shimmied onstage in skirts of satin palm leaves and Montmartre was a collection of windmills, vineyards, and rickety huts home to a vibrant bohemian community. Features four easy-to-use neighborhood maps and a comprehensive listing of contemporary jazz clubs.
