About this Item

"Jim Swanson tells the story of Percy Hughes, who grew up in South Minneapolis, shagged balls at Nicollet Park as a teen, and learned some hard lessons about race in the military stationed down South. As an adult Percy delivered the daily mail faithfully for decades-and still found time to play a commanding role in the vibrant Minneapolis night-club scene of the 1950s and 60s. He continued to play and teach extensively during the Big Band revival of more recent times, and also become a tennis coach of national stature." This book has 142 pages and is illustrated throughout + an UNOPENED AUDIO COMPACT DISC. Size: 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall. Bookseller Inventory # 066036

About this title


Based on extensive interviews, this book tells the story of jazz artist and tennis professional Percy Hughes, who entertained audiences at many venues throughout the Twin Cities for decades, including the Flame on Nicollet Avenue and the Point Club in Golden Valley. The region was a Swing Era hotspot, and Swanson recreates the flair of the period in loving detail. As an added bonus, the book includes a CD of Percy Hughes with the Red Wolfe Quartet.
