Jazzmen define the as the space between dancers/auditors and musicians where their sound achieves an ideal balance.
Sweet Spots: In-between Spaces in New Orleans maps similarly elusive intersections between particular spaces, stories and cultural performances in the Crescent City. A dozen lively, richly illustrated essays from a range of disciplines--including architecture, art, literature, music, cultural studies, and philosophy--explore how features of the city’s platting, gardens, housing types, streetscapes and neighborhoods mediate complex relations of race, gender, community, history, and environment. The volume evokes, preserves, criticizes and amends understandings of a powerful and often-missed aspect of this remarkable city.
This book is available in paperback ($30.00).
