Detroit: Ragtime and the Jazz Age, by Jon Milan

Detroit has always been at the forefront of American popular music development, and the ragtime years and jazz age are no exception.  The city’s long history of diversity has served the region well, providing a fertile environment for creating and nurturing some of America’s most distinctly indigenous music.  With a focus on the people and places that made Detroit a major contributor to America’s rich musical heritage, Detroit: Ragtime and the Jazz Age provides a unique photo journal of a period stretching from the Civil War to the diminishing years of the big bands in the early 1940s. 

 Softcover, 6 x 9, 128 pgs.
