Summary
  • "In this comprehensive volume, Scott Yanow traces the history of jazz through its recordings. Most live performances from this rich 60-year period are lost forever, but jazz fans can experience a rich legacy of recorded work. Sorting through and colorfully commenting on thousands of CDs and LPs, Yanow points out which performances are the most representative of the great 20th-century artists and which recordings are essential of jazz fans' collections. Along the way he takes readers on a journey through the golden ages of jazz, covering styles such as New Orleans jazz, swing, bebop, cool jazz, Dixieland, hard bop, soul jazz, the avant-garde, and fusion - and showing how these forms diverge, develop, and continue to flourish."--BOOK JACKET.
