9780819569080: Some Liked It Hot: Jazz Women in Film and Television, 1928–1959 (Music/Culture)

Women have been involved with jazz since its inception, but all too often their achievements were not as well known as those of their male counterparts. Some Liked It Hot looks at all-girl bands and jazz women from the 1920s through the 1950s and how they fit into the nascent mass culture, particularly film and television, to uncover some of the historical motivations for excluding women from the now firmly established jazz canon. This well-illustrated book chronicles who appeared where and when in over 80 performances, captured in both popular Hollywood productions and in relatively unknown films and television shows.

As McGee shows, these performances reflected complex racial attitudes emerging in American culture during the first half of the twentieth century. Her analysis illuminates the heavily mediated representational strategies that jazz women adopted, highlighting the role that race played in constituting public performances of various styles of jazz from “swing” to “hot” and “sweet.” The International Sweethearts of Rhythm, Hazel Scott, the Ingenues, Peggy Lee, and Paul Whiteman are just a few of the performers covered in the book, which also includes a detailed filmography.

About the Author:

KRISTIN A. McGEE is an assistant professor of popular music at the University of Groningen in the Netherlands.

Review:

"A remarkable book in every respect. Although one can find several other books on this topic, this study stands above the rest for its accuracy, scholarly discipline, thoroughness of research, and detailed analysis. ... A Stunning achievement. Essential."—G.A. Foster, Choice

"In her engaged style, McGee has provided a clear examination and analysis of recordings, early film and television, and other source material, producing a convincing and compelling addition to musicology, jazz and feminist performance scholarship.”—Monica Mays, Pacific Review of Ethnomusicology

McGee's "multidisciplinary work draws on the combined assumptions of ethnography and historiography to create an integrated , well rounded, and complete picture of the relatively unknown female jazz musicians as portrayed on the large and small screens. The book is well organized and penned in a decisively scholarly (though, thankfully, unpretentious) tone."—Edward R. Schmidtke, Film & History

"McGee's success in finding such a large number of all-girl bands is remarkable. Her prismatic way of presenting her findings allows us to see many facets of the issuesÑracial, gender, cultural, economic, and musical issuesÑand is painstaking, complex, and relentless."ÑAngela Latham, author of Posing a Threat "This very important work investigates how questions of gender and race intersected not only with music but with film, television, radio, and the recording industry."ÑLucy Fischer, director of film studies, University of Pittsburgh Kristin A.
