Between the mid-1930s and the late '40s, the center of the jazz world was a two-block stretch of 52nd Street in Manhattan. Dozens of crowded basement clubs between Fifth and Seventh avenues played host to legends such as Billie Holiday and Charlie Parker, as well as to innumerable professional musicians whose names aren't quite so well known. Together, these musicians and their audiences defied the traditional border between serious art and commercial entertainment - and between the races, as 52nd Street was home to some of the first nightclubs in New York to allow racially integrated bands and audiences. Patrick Burke argues that the jazz played on 52nd Street complicated simplistic distinctions between musical styles such as Dixieland, swing, and bebop. And since these styles were defined along racial lines, the music was itself a powerful challenge to racist ideology."Come In and Hear the Truth" uses a range of materials, from classic photographs to original interviews with musicians, to bring the street's vibrant history to life and to shed new light on the interracial contacts and collaborations it generated.
