Einband: Soft cover
London, Northway Publications, 2008. Illustrated. Paperback. 8vo. 278 pp. Index. (A very good copy!). Forward Groove is a powerfully eclectic survey of recorded jazz from 1923 to 2008, seeking to show jazz as a commentary on the social world of some of its finest musicians, from the great migrations north to Chicago and New York in the twenties and thirties, the campaigns against lynching and Jim Crow racism; the Civil Rights protests and the Vietnam anti-war movement of the fifties and sixties, to the South African anti-apartheid struggles in the sixties and seventies. The jazz art, insists Searle, is anything but mere entertainment: it is part of a culture of resistance, a music striving to build a framework of social and political justice. Searle shows that a vital dimension of jazz has always been to create a better, more joyous world, from Louis Armstrong's 'Coal Cart Blues', the lyrics of Bessie Smith and the Harlem rhapsodies of Duke Ellington, to Charlie Parker's 'Now's the Time', the new sounds of John Coltrane and Ornette Coleman and the commitment of Archie Shepp, and on to the contemporary Palestinian cry of Gilad Atzmon's alto saxophone.

Inhaltsangabe: A vibrant and thought-provoking survey of recorded jazz from its beginnings to the present.
Über den Autor: Chris Searle is jazz correspondent of the Morning Star and has written a weekly jazz column for the paper for the last decade. He has loved jazz since his teenage years in the late fifties, when a school friend played him Lester Young's 'Three Little Words' and Art Blakey's 'Blues March' and he heard the unadulterated 'New Orleans to London' sound of Ken Colyer's Jazzmen. He has been a teacher all his working life in schools and universities in the UK, Canada, Tobago, Mozambique and Grenada. He has written or edited 50 books on education, poetry, language and cricket, including his most recent volume of poetry, 'Lightening of your Eyes'.
