Swing under the Nazis : jazz as a metaphor for freedom by Michael Zwerin ( Book )

They included the Ghetto Swingers, a Jewish jazz band that "toured" Auschwitz and Theresienstadt; the Luftwaffe pilot who listened to Glenn Miller while bombing London; the Berlin swing gangs and Zazous (Parisian jazz enthusiasts) who risked persecution and imprisonment for the opportunity to dance openly to prohibited swing records; Django Reinhardt, the brilliant guitarist who refused to flee Nazi-controlled France; and many others." "Swing Under the Nazis also explores Zwerin's confrontation with a past that still has claims on the present as he recalls his own encounters with contemporary oppression - most notably a concert tour through apartheid-controlled South Africa with his multiracial jazz group."--BOOK JACKET

Close enough for jazz by Michael Zwerin ( Book )
2 editions published in 1983 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Mike Zwerin played with Miles Davis in the original Birth of the Cool sessions, but most of the anecdotes from his life as a participant and observer of jazz come from his days in the big bands of Maynard Ferguson and Claude Thornhill. Plenty of goofy moments from musicians on the road, self-discovery in Paris, etc. Not quite a working-class session musician, but not a star either, Mike comes off as amusing and down-to-earth. A fun read for musicians
