9780826429728: A New History of Jazz: Revised and Updated Edition

Alyn Shipton is on the editorial board of the new Smithsonian Collection of Classic Jazz, to be released in late 2006, and this new edition of "A New History of Jazz" will be referenced throughout to tracks in this new multi-CD collection of essential jazz recordings.


Brand New Edition Featuring Over 20% Entirely New Material

Praise for the first edition of A New History of Jazz:"The most outstanding single-volume history of jazz around."―Don Rose, Jazz Institute of Chicago

"No jazz writer, scholar, teacher, musician, or fan should be without it on his or her desk. Yes, it really is that good."―W. Royal Stokes, Jazz Notes

"Shipton has taken on the big on here and come up trumps...More trustworthy and less sentimental than many similar efforts...it achieves something approaching an essential text." ― Mojo

"A marvelously balanced yet passionate history of a protean cultural form. Not only is the book encyclopedic in the breadth of its coverage, but it has a thesis - or, more accurately, a set of interlocking theses - about how the music has developed." ― History Today

"Shipton's done his homework, and he knows how to tell a story." ― Blender

In this major update of the acclaimed and award-winning jazz history, Alyn Shipton challenges many of the assumptions that surround the birth and growth of jazz music. How was it that it took off all over the United States early in the 20th century, despite the accepted wisdom that everything began in New Orleans? Shipton also re-evaluates the transition from swing to be-bop, asking just how political this supposed modern jazz revolution actually was. He makes the case for jazz as a truly international music from its earliest days, charting significant developments outside the USA from the 1920s onwards.

All the great names in jazz history are here, from Louis Armstrong to Miles Davis and from Sidney Bechet to Charlie Parker and John Coltrane. But unlike those historians who call a halt with the death of Coltrane in 1967, Shipton continues the story with the major trends in jazz over the last 40 years: free jazz, jazz rock, world music influences, and the re-emergence of the popular jazz singer.

This new edition brings the book completely up-to-date, including such names as John Medeski, Diana Krall, Django Bates, and Matthias Ruegg. There are also important new sections on Latin Jazz and the repertory movement.

Review:

"The most outstanding single-volume history of jazz around."

—Don Rose, Jazz Institute of Chicago

"Shipton's done his homework, and he knows how to tell a story." — Blender



"When it comes to jazz, comparatively few attempts have been made to write a general history that fulfills these requirements...The most ambitious of them, Alyn Shipton's A New History of Jazz...reissued in an expanded and extensively revised edition. At over 800 closely packed pages, this is the most detailed historical survey of jazz yet to be published.(Alyn Shipton) has done more than any previous commentator to cut through the thick underbrush of unsubstantiated opinion and provide a clearly written, factually trustworthy account of jazz's complex and controversial history."Commentary Magazine Online, April 2007 (Terry Teachout)

"Shipton's is a no-nonsense account that picks apart the co-existing, intermingling strands of perhaps the most complex genre of all." Jason Draper, Record Collector, 01/09/07 "essential to understanding a much misunderstood culture, music and art form." Jason Draper, Record Collector, 01/09/07 (Jason Draper)

"This remains the standard-bearer for jazz histories, a valuable read for any fan." -Downbeat Magazine
"A New History of Jazz enlightens as few other jazz histories can... Shipton, a veteran writer and BBC broadcaster, is a natural storyteller with good academic instincts... He sheds fresh light on the music's origins" Forrest Bryant, Downbeat, November 2007 (Forrest Bryant)

"Shipton... has done more than any prvious commentator to cut through the thick underbrush of unsubstantiated opinion and provide a clearly written, factually trustworthy account of jazz's complex and controversial history"Commentary Magazine
