Description - Landing on the Wrong Note by Ajay Heble

This is a study of jazz from two perspectives: as a cultural and musical form, and as the subject of cultural theory. If jazz is the most sophisticated, even cerebral, of popular musical genres, what can literary and cultural theory contribute to our understanding of it? By intermingling personal anecdote, observation, and conversation with jazz artists, as well as deploying the materials of cultural theory (gender, psychoanalysis, and so forth), Ajay Heble offers an imaginative tool for understanding what it is that jazz does.
