The American Society of Composers, Authors & Publishers has named “Harlem in Montmartre: A Paris Jazz Story Between the Great Wars” by the late Professor of Anthropology William Shack as a recipient of its Deems Taylor Special Recognition Award.

Published in 2001 by University of California Press, “Harlem in Montmartre” discusses the small but dynamic community of African American jazz musicians who settled in Paris between the world wars, creating a vibrant expatriate musical scene and introducing jazz to the French.

Deems Taylor Awards are presented annually to American authors and journalists for books, articles, and liner notes on the subject of music. “Harlem in Montmartre” was chosen for excellence in the “pop books” category; it will be honored at a Dec. 4 ceremony in New York City.
