David Mirvish Books in Toronto presents a book launch for Let That Bad Air Out: Buddy Bolden's Last Parade, published by the Porcupine's Quill, a graphic novel by student Stefan Berg.
"Very little is known of Buddy Bolden, his music was never recorded
and there is only one existing photograph, yet he is considered to be the first bandleader
to play the improvised music that has since become known as jazz," said Berg.
In his new book, Berg portrays the culture of New Orleans parade music through the narrative of Buddy Bolden's final parade.
The novel consists of 70 images cut from linoleum. Stories told in pictures have a universality that transcends the boundaries of any spoken or written language providing the reader with a unique experience of a narrative akin to a silent film.
Let That Bad Air Out, is the first in a series of wordless novels to be published by The Porcupine's Quill. Feature books include David Helwig's Smuggling Donkeys and George
Walker's Images From The Neocerebellum. Let That Bad Air Out will be sold at selected
book stores including David Mirvish Books on Art, Pages and Chapters.
