The Parisian jazz chronicles : an improvisational memoir by Michael Zwerin( )

10 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 1,789 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Parisian Jazz Chronicles offers a personal account of the jazz scene in Paris in the 1980s and 1990s. Zwerin writes lovingly but unsparingly about figures he knew and interviewed - such as Dexter Gordon, Freddy Heineken, Miles Davis, Bob Dylan, Chet Baker, Wayne Shorter, and Melvin Van Peebles. Against this background, Zwerin tells about his own life - split allegiances to journalism and music, and to America and France, his battle for sobriety, a failing marriage, and fatherhood."--Jacket

7 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 188 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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."--Jacket
