The project that would become Images of America: Milwaukee Jazz began in 2016 as a simple assignment for the website of 88Nine Radio Milwaukee. It grew into an award-winning, two-part multimedia series about the history and contemporary resurgence of jazz in Milwaukee.
Hometown writer Joey Grihalva, a hip-hop head with a penchant for jazz, expanded on that initial research, gathering photographs and stories from a community of aficionados, fans, family members, musicians, club owners, civic organizations, and online sources.
Images of America: Milwaukee Jazz was released by Arcadia Publishing on July 15, 2019.
