April 2024, , ''SWING, texts and poems by Gaston Criel, 1948'' (CEMJazz collections)

SWING, by Gaston Criel, first edition, 1948.

"Swing" by Gaston Criel, 1948

Gaston Criel was a great jazz fan. In this book, introduced by Jean Cocteau and Charles Delaunay, Criel, through texts and poems, celebrates “swing” and “hot” in terms that are no less hot! The presentation booklet shows the author in the company of Duke Ellington and Dizzy Gillespie. A book to be (re)discovered as a matter of urgency!
