This month from University of Wales Press, Freedom Music: Wales, Emancipation and Jazz 1850-1950 by Jen Wilson reclaims for Wales the history and culture of a music that eventually emerged as jazz in the 1920s, its tendrils and roots extending back to slave songs and abolition campaign songs, and Swansea’s long-forgotten connection with Cincinnati, Ohio.
