The Hot Time Swingers, a mix of African Americans and German jazz musicians, were once popular in Berlin but because of the rise of Hitler and the Nazi’s are forbidden to play and they must to escape to Paris. However, German troops invade and they find themselves trying to finish a recording before they must flee the city. Many years later two members are reunited and return to Europe to find some answers about what really happened all those years ago.
I enjoy and appreciate all types of music and really enjoy when it is presented well within a story. Like jazz, the book is not always easy to follow but it is a very good story about sacrifices and friendships made as well as betrayal and loss in following their dreams and the quest for greatness.
