Read full description of the books:



« Il ne dormait pas assez et buvait trop... Il arrivait ainsi, en amateur et comme par accident, avec ses musiciens sur la scène du Masonic Hall et explosait en jazz, franchissant tous les obstacles, interrompant parfois sa course pour s'adresser à la foule. Il encourageait les musiciens à jouer plus fort pour que la musique s'entende de la rue... »
C'était au début du siècle, à La Nouvelle-Orléans, dans un quartier qui n'est pas tout à fait celui qui est passé à l'histoire. Mais Charles (Buddy) Bolden, lui, est resté l'une des grandes figures légendaires du jazz, et c'est sa vie qu'évoque ce roman d'une rare beauté.

Le blues de Buddy Bolden relate les événements réels et imaginaires de la vie du cornettiste de jazz de la Nouvelle-Orléans, Buddy Bolden.
