Maps the representation of jazz and the occasions of its performance in South African literature and reportage, from King Kong reportage to the agonised poetics of exile, Soweto poets of the 1970s to the Staffrider generation of the 1980s. Argues that South African jazz has been formed from complex transactions with other black Atlantic cultures, identities and politics, and local contingencies have been managed through elaborating a relational history that has cut across the hierarchies of colonial and apartheid ideology.
