Summary

America's most widely used introduction to jazz text aims at capturing the minds of students to jazz, by teaching them the history of the style and showing them how to listen to jazz critically. While its chronological set up serves as a great resource for beginners, Jazz Styles has been adopted by music history afficianados and advanced musicians because of its in-depth analysis of musical elements and its technical appendices that discuss advanced music theory concepts. This new edition incorporates coverage of new celebrated jazz musicians, and features an online supplement MyMusicLab, which will offer quick ways for students to watch related videos and hear highlighted musical examples.
