My newest book is Historic Photos of New Orleans Jazz. My award winning book about early Jazz and Blues, From Cakewalks to Concert Halls:An Illustrated History of African-American Popular Music:From 1895-1930, was published by Elliott & Clark.
I have dedicated the last thirty years of my life to teaching people about jazz. I give talks, I produce and host radio shows, I write, do interviews and oral histories. If you need someone to talk or write about jazz, I am your man. Email me at tom - at - jass.com.
