CHICAGO BLUES: An interview with David Grazian author of Blue Chicago: The Search for Authenticity in Urban Blues Clubs

Blue Chicago: The Search for Authenticity in Urban Blues Clubs

"Blue Chicago offers a revealing look at an important part of Chicago life. David Grazian spent lots of time in blues clubs all over the city, schmoozing with musicians, bartenders, club owners, and audiences, sometimes even taking the stage himself. What he uncovers is how people involved with the Chicago blues scene define the blues experience and how they make use of those definitions when performing and producing the music. This is a wonderful book."—Howard S. Becker, author of Outsiders
