Early Twentieth-Century Brass Idioms: Art, Jazz, and Other Popular Traditions, edited by Howard T. Weiner, features articles by some of the most distinguished jazz and brass scholars and performers in the world. Topics span continents and decades, bridging gaps that until now remained uncrossed. Two primary themes emerge: the contribution brass performers made to the evolution of jazz in the early twentieth century and the influence of jazz and popular music idioms on the evolution of brass performance.
