Description

Tells the joyful story of the musicians, the radio DJs, the record labels, and the live venues where jazz not only survived but thrived in the 1960s. In an era marked by turmoil and struggle, popular jazz offered a powerful outlet for joy, resilience, pride, and triumph.

Smith will open a lot of eyes to an entire subgenre of ‘soul jazz’ that just got lost in the shuffle, especially when Motown was king. But no matter how much jazz a listener has lived with over a lifetime long or short, every reader can learn a lot from In with the In Crowd." - Richard J. Salvucci, All About Jazz

"With energy and zeal, In with the In Crowd goes a long way toward correcting and completing the written history of jazz from the mid-twentieth century." - Keith Hatschek, author of The Real Ambassadors: Dave and Iola Brubeck and Louis Armstrong Challenge Segregation

"Mike Smith’s In with the In Crowd addresses the fascinating—and puzzling—near-absence of popular jazz artists from conventional histories of jazz. Underlying the entire work is a deep familiarity with and profound love of these artists and their music, and a desire to correct and expand the familiar historical narrative." - Jonathan Bellman, area head of academic studies in music at University of Northern Colorado

Mike Smith has been a performer, writer, arranger, and educator for more than forty years. He is coordinator of Jazz Studies at The Ohio State University, where he conducts the jazz ensemble, jazz fusion combo, and teaches jazz styles and jazz pedagogy classes.
