Summary
San Francisco's infamous Barbary Coast was one of the country's thriving centers of jazz in the early 1900s. "Jazz on the Barbary Coast" captures the incredible energy of the black jazz scene of this era through the firsthand accounts of men who were at the heart of it. They recreate the hot spots, dances, rivalries, and lawlessness that characterized the San Francisco jazz scene and inspired jazz musicians for generations to come
