Jazz and the blues have a long history - sometimes together other times apart. In Jazz and  the Blues Daniel Hardie traces its actual course of their relationship from its beginning from roots in New Orleans to its appearance in Chicago in 1915 -  its appearance in popular music in the 1920’s - its strange connections in the 1940’s and beyond, and its challenges in the pop culture of the present.
