When Blue needs to just get things out, he picks up his trumpet and lets it sing. His jazz club, Paradise, was once the place in Detroit’s Blackbottom neighborhood—until the day Silver, a mysterious woman with a walk that drives men crazy, shows up with her own ideas for Paradise and turns everyone’s world upside down. Dynamic, sultry, and spiced with humor, Paradise Blue is a new American classic you’ll want to experience.
“…a juicy and resonant piece of writing filled to the brim with complex, empathetic characters. It is not hard to become involved with their choices and worry about their futures.” – Chicago Tribune
