About this title


Known to serious students of jazz as the "Father of Stride Piano," James P. Johnson has only recently begun to receive the acclaim he merits. Born in New Brunswick, NJ and reared in the cultural hotbed of Harlem, Johnson spanned the ragtime era, through the roaring twenties (to which he contributed its theme song the Charleston) and into the swing era.

Part I is a chronological biography, with listings of his musical revues, extended compositions, film work, and all other song and instrumental pieces; a comprehensive bibliography; and photos. Part II is an exhaustive discography.

About the Author:

Scott Brown received a BA from Yale University, where he spent his senior year as a Scholar of the House working on James P. Johnson. He is a graduate of Rutgers Medical School (NJ) and is pursuing a career in surgery. Robert Hilbert, Director of Audiovisual Services at Miami-Dade Community College, Miami, Florida, has written numerous articles on jazz and has contributed to many standard discographies. His column, "Discographical Forum," has appeared regularly in Joslin's Jazz Journal.
