America’s most widely used introduction to jazz, it teaches the chronology of jazz by showing readers how to listen and what to notice in each style.


A text for courses in jazz appreciation, focusing on American instrumental jazz and emphasizing descriptions of jazz styles rather than a decade-by-decade chronicle. Contains chapter summaries, b&w photos, a chronology, guides to jazz albums and videos, and separate appendices on elements of music for musicians and nonmusicians. In this sixth edition chapters begin on the same page numbers as the fifth. Music cassettes/CD-ROMs are available. For high school through college students with no previous knowledge of music.
