This entertaining one-volume comprehensive history of jazz and the artists who made it popular contains musical examples so that students who do not read music will not be inhibited. Combines a rich detail of the origins of jazz with insightful biographies and contributions of jazz legends, including Duke Ellington, Count Bassie, Charlie Parker, Miles Davies, John Coltrane, and the jazz bands of the 30's, 40's, 50's, and 60's. Ideal for for all Introduction to Jazz and Jazz History courses in Music, as well as African-American Studies, and the 20th Century American Studies at the undergraduate level.
