Chicago Jazz - William Howland Kenney

This quote was added by acidline
As musicians appeared before the public as entertainers, they became role models for many younger musicians who either attended their performances or looked in through windows or doors from the streets or alleys. Chicago jazzmen symbolized a new, urban style in racial pride, just as cabarets, cafes, and buffet restaurants signaled that their customers were no longer shabby "Can Toters," trudging home from work with a bucket of beer.
