My research interests include popular music in the United States, the entertainment industry, and jazz history and American ideology. My first book, Going For Jazz: Musical Practices and American Ideology, was published by the University of Chicago Press in 2001 and I have published articles and reviews in wide variety of forums on the cultural history of popular music in the United States. In addition to my work on Rhythm Changes, I am currently working on a book called Music is our Business: the rise of the popular musician in American culture, 1882-1929 for the University of Chicago Press.
We are continuing to redevelop the Rhythm Changes website as a jazz research portal for European jazz researchers. Please bear with us as we populate the site, and sign up or visit us again to see how we are getting on. If you have some material or feature you think we should be including, do get in touch.
