Description
Jazz 101 is a fascinating entrée into the world of jazz, for the beginner, novice, or jazz enthusiast. Szwed takes listeners on a tour of the varied and nonlinear history of jazz, exploring how it developed from an ethnic music to become America’s most popular music and then part of the avant-garde in less than fifty years. Szwed’s complete overview includes the major types of jazz and significant jazz musicians of the twentieth century; the roots of jazz, including its European and African influences; and recommended listening, plus appendices on jazz singers, record guides, and more.

Infinitely readable and highly entertaining, Jazz 101 is a vital tool in understanding and appreciating jazz.
