Before Motown.

Lars
Bjorn

In this fascinating book, the author presents the first look at the evolution of jazz in Detroit, complete with 75 photographs of local clubs and musicians. The title comes from his startling discovery that the music known as Motown was only possible because local jazz artists took Motown assignments as day jobs and then played jazz in clubs like Baker's Keyboard.
