Making the Changes

Jazz in South African Literature and Reportage


Throughout its history, South African Jazz has been formed from complex transactions with other black Atlantic cultures, identities and political possibilities. Making the Changes considers jazz discourse from the legendary élan vital of the Sophiatown writers, through the King Kong reportage and 'white writing', to the agonised poetics of exile.
