Abstract:
"By the 1930s, Briggs was considered "the Louis Armstrong of Paris," and was the peer of the greatest names of his time, from Josephine Baker to Django Reinhardt. In 1940, he was arrested and sent to the prison camp at Saint Denis. Based on groundbreaking research and including unprecedented access to Briggs's oral memoir, this is a crucial document of jazz history, a fast-paced epic, and an entirely original tale of survival"-- Provided by publisher.
