As many South Carolina pre-jazz and pre-blues musicians as possible are .

As many South Carolina pre-jazz and pre-blues musicians as possible are included. Prysock, Feather, and others were wrong, and acceptance of 1929 had consequences. The contents of Jazz and Blues Musicians of South Carolina were arranged chronologically according to musicians’ birth dates, with Prysock placed between Etta Jones (presumably born in 1928, though possibly 1927) and Nappy Brown (October 1929). Yet after the book was published something seemed amiss.

I found this book to be really interesting from my point of view as a former South Carolina musician myself from the 1970's. It has interviews with folks I had gigged with, read about, and heard stories about during my few years in Columbia as a student of one of the interviewees, Dick Goodwin. Since many famous musicians who were born in SC are covered, it gives a particularly interesting perspective on the influence of the "local scene" on many who went on to stellar jazz careers, from Dizzy Gillespie to Chris Potter. A good read!
