A history of jazz in the Twin Cities

This arrived in my mailbox on Saturday, and I can't wait to read it.

Author Jay Goetting is a journalist and bass player who lived and worked in the Twin Cities; he now splits his time between Phoenix and San Francisco. The foreword was written by Leigh Kamman, who spent 60 years in broadcasting, many as host of MPR's The Jazz Image. The Minnesota Historical Society Press is the publisher.

Goetting will be in town the first weekend in May. On Saturday, May 7, the Artists' Quarter will host a book signing. Kamman will also be there, along with members of the MnHS Press. The signing starts at 8, after which the Atlantis Quartet takes the stage.
