9780803242500: The Guitar in Jazz: An Anthology

The Guitar in Jazz presents in rich, entertaining detail the history and development of the guitar as a jazz instrument. In a series of essays by some of jazz’s leading historians and critics, the volume traces the impressive evolution of jazz guitar playing, from the pioneering styles of Nick Lucas and Eddie Lang through the recent innovations of such contemporary masters as Jim Hall and Ralph Towner. Editor James Sallis has included essays that focus on individual guitarists, including Charlie Christian, Django Reinhardt, and JoePass. Other chapters vividly describe important jazz guitar styles, such as swing guitar and fingerstyle guitar.

In all, The Guitar in Jazz provides a full and captivating portrait of the guitar’s place in jazz. The book also offers insights into the larger history of jazz—its development, the social contexts in which the music came into being, and its eventual recognition as "the American classical music." The essays will appeal to guitar players and enthusiasts, and to all jazz lovers.

Review:

Although the guitar has played a sizeable role in jazz since at least the early 1920s--when Eddie Lang added his six-string expertise to recordings by the Mound City Blue Blowers--there have been surprisingly few books on the subject. James Sallis's fine anthology covers all the bases, from early pioneers like Lang and Charlie Christian to latter-day virtuosi like Jim Hall and Bill Frisell. Hardly a single significant player is overlooked. In addition, there's an attractive variety to the essays themselves, which include both close-focus examinations of particular performances such as Django Reinhardt's "You Rascal You," and wide-angle historical pieces such as Leonard Feather's introductory ramble, which crams seven decades into 11 pages.

About the Author:

James Sallis is a guitar player and writer. He is the author of The Guitar Players, available as a Bison Book, and of the novels The Long-Legged Fly, Moth, and Black Hornet.

Descripción University of Nebraska Press. Hardback. Estado de conservación: new. BRAND NEW, The Guitar in Jazz: An Anthology, James Sallis, James Sallis, "Guitarists have been making major contributions to jazz since the 1920s, when Eddie Lang first began adding his brand of six-string sophistication to performances by the Mound City Blowers. Yet the history of the jazz guitar has remained largely undocumented, at least in any methodical way. Now James Sallis has put together a long-overdue anthology which traces the evolution of jazz guitar as well as celebrating some of the instrument's greatest players."--Jazz Times "Probably the most comprehensive anthology of essays essential to a complete understanding of jazz guitar and its stylistic history.Sallis' exhaustive research is clearly edited and written, and I feel it'll be the reference source for the jazz lover, guitarist and non-guitarist alike in the next few years."--Dennis Gonzalez, The New Jazz Review. "An unfailingly lively and informative collection of essays that traces the guitar's evolution in the hands of jazz and jazz-influenced artists who have not only mastered the instrument, but repeatedly reinvented it."--Gary Giddins, author of Faces in the Crowd. The Guitar in Jazz presents in rich, entertaining detail the history and development of the guitar as a jazz instrument. In a series of essays by some of jazz's leading historians and critics, the volume traces the impressive evolution of jazz guitar playing, from the pioneering styles of Nick Lucas and Eddie Lang through the recent innovations of such contemporary masters as Jim Hall and Ralph Towner. Editor James Sallis has included essays that focus on individual guitarists, including Charlie Christian, Django Reinhardt, and JoePass. Other chapters vividly describe important jazz guitar styles, such as swing guitar and fingerstyle guitar. In all, The Guitar in Jazz provides a full and captivating portrait of the guitar's place in jazz.
