  • DUNBAR

  • When I decided to create a book about the Dunbar Hotel I expected—as one always 
     on a project like this—to discover many fascinating things, but I expected all of those 
    things to be ultimately centered around jazz. To those in the know, that’s what the 
    Dunbar is, the place where jazz luminaries performed, partied and rested their heads 
    while visiting the city of Angels.

    The Dunbar though, is a microcosm of the very shaping of America—it is about 
    self-determination, religion, social unrest, migration and immigration, segregation 
    and desegregation, wealth distribution and class politics, and of course, jazz.
