You might want to look for the following: Making Jazz French: Music And Modern Life In Interwar Paris by Jeffrey H. Jackson, (Duke University Press, 2003)

Also, Phillipe Baudoin wrote a good, concise sidebar called Le Jazz Hot: Jazz in Paris Between The World Wars found in the book Jazz: The first Century.

You could also read some of the criticism of Charles Delauney, Hughes Pannassie and Mike Zwerin.

> JPL'ers...some help needed. I will be giving a few lectures on jazz and one is on American Jazz in France from the end of the first World War to about 1950 at Old Dominion University. I need to brush up in this category so any recommendations on what to research would be greatly appreciated.
