  3. Were any of the jazzbos involved in socialist politics?

  4. Ismael, Jazz has always been linked to socialist and anti-racist policies.

  5. Paddy, can you recommend any reading on that? I’m looking on Amazon (searching for “jazz,” “socialism,” and variations thereof), and all I’m getting is stuff about underground jazz scenes in Nazi Germany and the Soviet Union. Although I do see that Robin D.G. Kelley has some promising-looking stuff.
