Fletcher Henderson (1897 - 1952) is a major figure in the history of jazz. He led the premier black jazz band of the 1920s and the early 1930s, and wrote the swing arrangements that helped make Benny Goodman the 'King of Swing'. The Uncrowned King of Swing is the first interpretive study of his music and career, using the full range of sources documenting his work.
