Description - Cats Of Any Color by Gene Lees

"Lees is the glowing jewel of jazz for his understanding of it [and] for his writing about it."-Dizzy Gillespie. In a series of candid interviews with jazz players, composers, and critics, Gene Lees explores racism in the past and present of jazzboth the white racism that for decades ghettoized black musicians and their music, and the prejudice that Lees documents of some black musicians against their white counterparts. With subjects ranging from Horace Silver to Dave Brubeck to Red Rodney, and a new introduction analyzing recent developments, Cats of Any Color chronicles jazz as a multiethnic art.
