Acerca de


Beginning at the turn of the century, The Chronicle of Jazz charts the evolution of jazz from Africa and the southern United States to the myriad urban styles heard around the world today. The book looks closely at how jazz has influenced - and been influenced by - other musical and artistic forms. Each chronologically arranged section features topics ranging from the individual qualities of the bass clarinet and the jazz scene in Paris to personality sketches and seminal gigs. Cross-references throughout point to related motifs, people, and music, and a complete reference section at the back contains an extensive discography, glossary, biographies, bibliography, and index. Modeled on the improvisation, interaction, and rhythm of jazz itself, this book features hundreds of rare images of all kinds, from record covers to pictures of live performances, and is accompanied by an accessible and wide ranging text that turns music into words and history into living images. The Chronicle of Jazz is a celebration of the twentieth century's most imaginative and enduring music, and an essential work of reference for all lovers of music.


[R]ich in photographs and other graphic mementos. . . . Boldly designed and conceived, [it is] rich enough to be considered [a] coffee table [book] but the thorough histories, biographies, discographies and other reference materials . . . qualify [it] as far more than the usual picture book. -- Belle Magazine, Winter '98
