Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Joachim-Ernst Berendt (20 July 1922 in Berlin - 4 February 2000 in Hamburg) was a German music journalist, book author and producer specialized on Jazz. Berendt's father Ernst Berendt was a Protestant pastor belonging to the Confessing Church and was imprisoned and died in the Dachau concentration camp. J.-E. Berendt started studying Physics, but was interrupted by his enlistment to the Wehrmacht. Already during the Nazi Germany years Berendt took an interest in Jazz, which then had retreated to the underground. After World War II he helped founding the S dwestfunk (SWF) radio network in the then French occupation zone of Germany. From 1950 till his retirement in 1987 he was in charge of the Jazz department of the SWF. In 1952 the first German edition of Berendt's Jazz Book was published. It became a definitive book on Jazz translated into many languages and is still being updated and reprinted. For almost 40 years Berendt produced the Jazz program of the Baden-Baden station of the German public radio and TV network ARD.show more
