This is a reference book covering the whole spectrum of jazz from its origins in ragtime to such contemporary innovators as "Loose Tubes". Included are entries on all the major jazz figures of the world as well as detailed evaluations of more recent practitioners such as Ornette Coleman and Joe Zawinul and in-depth coverage of lesser-known early contributors. The biographical entries provide the essential facts of the musicians life and work, followed by a brief list of their most important recordings. There are lucid definitions of Jazz terms such as bebop, cool, dirty and funk as well as essays on historical subjects such as New Orleans and Dixieland. The three authors are all jazz musicians themselves. Buchnummer des Verkäufers 023347

Über diesen Titel

From Library Journal:

This complement to extant jazz reference works is long overdue. Engagingly written by musician/critics, it offers an international scope appropriately emphasizing figures of major historical importance while also heralding promising younger performers. Noteworthy innovators are credited, recordings noted, and jazzspecific terms defined. Alphabetical entries are complete and self-contained, an advantage over Leonard Feather's decade-specific Ency clopedia of Jazz (Da Capo, 1984. reprint). Though it is as inclusive as Joachim Berendt's The Jazz Book (Lawrence Hill, 1987. rev. ed.), unlike the Harmony Illustrated Encyclopedia of Jazz (1987. 3d ed.) it is not concerned with pop/rock artists. Comprehensive enough for general collections, but with a currency and level of detail that will please the specialist. Paul Baker, CUNA Inc., Madison, Wis.
