This text for an introductory course offers a chronological exploration of jazz from its roots in African tradition to neo-swing and world music, placing the music's development within a social and intellectual historical context, including the Harlem Renaissance of the 1920s and black activism of the 1960s. Included with second edition, Martin (Rutgers University, Newark, N.J.) and Waters (University of Colorado at Boulder) offer an audio primer CD with in-text references, which demonstrates basic musical concepts and the principle instruments of jazz.
