Jazz for Curious Readers
Ed Berger, Author Of Books On Benny Carter And George Duvivie
January 17, 2011

This discussion is a continuation of Jazz for Curious Readers from last month, where Berger, a talented photographer, gave a slide show of his photographic artistry. This month we get to the books!

Biographer and photographer Ed Berger was the Associate Director and Head of Research Services of the Institute of Jazz Studies for over 30 years. He's a graduate of Indiana University and has a M.L.S. from Rutgers University. Bergerís books Benny Carter: A Life in American Music, Reminiscing in Tempo, and Basically Speaking: An Oral History of George Duvivier have been universally acclaimed as high water marks in jazz scholarship. He served as record producer and road manager for Benny Carter and will delight us this evening with anecdotes about two of the gentlemen of jazz who lit up the stages of jazz for decade upon decade with sophisticated artistry, and with whom he was a very close friend.
