Abstract:

"As the dashing and handsome leader of one of America's most accomplished big bands in the 1930s and 40s, Artie Shaw achieved measures of fame and fortune which temporarily eclipsed even those of his great rival, Benny Goodman. Shaw's five top single recordings had sold over 65 million copies by 1965, and by 1990 his total sales exceeded 100 million records. Yet he was an ambitiously serious musician who frequently tired of the music business, often forsaking it for extended periods; he also achieved renown as a writer of fiction. Unlike Goodman, Shaw has not been well served by jazz historians; in rectifying that omission, this study offers a narrative account and analytical assessment of the achievements and concerns of a major figure in American popular music"--Back cover.
