“GENDER DISPARITY IN UK JAZZ,” the new book by DEBBIE BURKE and SAMMY STEIN, was released October 25, 2020, and quickly hit #6 in “Best Seller in Jazz Music” on Amazon. This new investigation into gender disparity in UK jazz peels back the layers and goes deep into the jazz scene looking at the different ways gender discrimination is occurring, how it is being tackled, and the way forward. Author Sammy Stein talks to UK musicians, educators and researchers as well as venue managers and festival curators to bring together research and new insights. The book discusses, in a highly readable and engaging format, the historical and sociological influences concerning gender pay gaps. Readers can hear the jazz come off the pages.

The book is a delicious look into the depths of the UK jazz scene told in a respectful manner. Stein, an expert in her field of jazz journalism, calls in many contacts from the UK, and US editor Debbie Burke adds her expertise to make this book accessible, informative and a light, tight read.
