Norman Granz - The Man Who Used Jazz for Justice


470 pgs.
University of California Press, Publ.

Tad Hershorn's biography recounts Granz's story: creator of the legendary jam session concerts known as Jazz at the Philharmonic; founder of the Verve record label; pioneer of live recordings and worldwide jazz concert tours; manager and recording producer for numerous stars, including Ella Fitzgerald and Oscar Peterson, and, as he says in his own words: "Any book on my life would start with my basic philosophy of fighting racial prejudice. I loved jazz, and jazz was my way of doing that."
