Meet the authors Dennis Pratt and Dr. Tom Shaker and learn about Rhode Island's great jazz history! 

From Providence’s legendary Celebrity Club, the first interracial night club in New England, to the renowned Monday night Big Band jazz gigs that began with Duke Belaire and continue today with John Allmark, A Treasury of Rhode Island Jazz & Swing Musicians will delight the jazz lover in all of us, whether you’re from Rhode Island or not.

Professor Tom Shaker hosts The Soul Serenade, a soul & funk radio show on WICN in Worcester, MA. He has worked in video and film production in Los Angeles and Boston and is also a filmmaker. (Look for “Do It Man; The Story of The Celebrity Club” coming soon.)

Dennis Pratt is a graduate of the Navy School of Music, and Berklee College of Music. He found his way from Boston to Rhode Island as a high school band director and professional musician. He has performed with many of the musicians listed in this book.  Weaver Library audiences have enjoyed Dennis's performances as well!
