Praise for the first edition
‘There are not many books like this, to which you can dance.’— John Lonsdale, Trinity College, Cambridge‘Written by the most distinguished figure of South Africanmusicology, [it] aims at nothing less than a complete revision of some of the most entrenched myths about South African music.’— Veit Erlmann, Freie Universität, Berlin‘Ballantine has written an important book which goesfar beyond its subject matter, jazz. It is a gem of scholarship.’— Z.B. Molefe, author of 
 A Common Hunger to Sing: A Tributeto South Africa’s Black Women of Song 1950 to 1990 
‘There is no doubt that
 Marabi Nights
is one of a few seminal works in South African jazz history. It made a very significant contribution to mapping South African proletarian history when it first appeared and remainsan important work of cultural historiography.’— Gwen Ansell, author of 
Soweto Blues: Jazz, Popular Music & Politics in South Africa
