Jazz Power, l’aventure Jazz Magazine, 1954-1974 (Jazz Power, The Jazz Magazine Adventure, 1954-1974)

This book takes us through the first 20 years of this French magazine that worked to introduce jazz to France, to change the representation of black jazz.wo.men and more broadly that of the African-American community.
At the time of the racial segregation laws in the United States (in force until 1964) and of the difficult process of decolonization initiated by France, rare were the publications of the French press that put African-Americans on the cover as did Jazz Magazine with Billie Holiday, Abbey Lincoln, Mahalia Jackson, Thelonious Monk, Dizzie Gillespie or John Coltrane...
From the outset, the young team of the magazine, founded in 1954 by Nicole and Eddie Barclay, became the apostle of musical borrowings and cultural exchanges, testifying ardently to the struggles for civil rights in America, as well as to the discrimination suffered by African-Americans on both sides of the Atlantic. The monthly magazine quickly became the field of experimentation and position-taking of the two editors-in-chief, from 1956 onwards, Frank Ténot and Daniel Filipacchi. Surrounded by enthusiasts, they actively participated in the construction of "legends" in France, between sacredness and humanization, between distancing the stars and controlled revelation of the backstage of this very exclusive club that is jazz.
