Review of Heffley, Mike. 2005. Northern Sun, Southern Moon: Europe's Reinvention of Jazz. New Haven: Yale University Press.

Lewis, George E.

With the publication of Mike Heffley's Northern Sun, Southern Moon:
Europe's Reinvention of Jazz, Yale University Press joins the ranks of the few
American academic presses that have published serious scholarly work on
post -1965 experimental improvised musics in Europe. This book documents
an important period in recent European music history that is only beginning
to be addressed by scholars writing in English, and in the process, uses
a unique combination of historical inquiry and ethnographic practice that
brings out a series of fascinating and contentious issues surrounding this
network of players and their music.
