The Complete Idiot's Guide to Jazz

Description

Jazz, which is believed to have evolved in the 19th from a variety of Mississippi influences, is currently enjoying something of a musical renaissance. This Complete Idiot's Guide instructs readers on everything they need to know about the evolution of jazz, including: its origins in folk, Dixie, African music, and rhythm and blues; the first recordings in 1917; the incredible advances during the "Jazz Age"; the pioneering efforts of musicians such as Louis Armstrong; and present-day infusions of jazz with reggae, pop, rock, and soul. Features profiles of such legends as Charlie Parker, John Coltrane, and Billie Holliday, as well as career highlights of contemporary luminaries such as Quincy Jones, Wynton Marsalis, and George Benson. Includes numerous CD recommendations, photos, a chronology, discographies, further readings, and a glossary.
