Summary "Rewrites our notion of jazz history to explore the impact of African-American jazz in South Asia, and for the first time, bring to life a remarkable example of early globalization"--Container. "Built around a portrait of surviving Indian jazzman, the maverick guitarist Carlton Kitto, audiences are taken on a richly atmospheric journey into India's little-known jazz age that lasted from the 1920s to the 1970s and until now has gone unrecorded in the history of that country and the history of jazz. ... A maverick dedicated to pure jazz, particularly bebop, Carlton, 68, is an unsung cultural custodian who has nurtured hundreds of young musicians in the jazz idiom, and who still plays to half-empty Calcutta hotels. ... Where other jazz artists of his generation, including Louiz Banks, chose to flee post Independence, Communist-run Calcutta for prosperity in Bollywood, Carlton remained, devoting himself to his craft and to sustaining an ever-shrinking jazz community in a city hostile to all reminders of India's colonial past"--Notes.
