Description: In the early forties a group of young musicians -- Charlie Parker, Dizzy Gillespie, Bud Powell, and others -- began to play jazz in a style that no one even had a name for. It was a faster, lighter, edgier music, with melodies and harmonies that by previous definitions of jazz were "wrong" yet in this context sounded right -- and revolutionary. This was the birth of bebop, and American music hasn't been the same since.

In this authoritative work, Ira Gitler tells the story of bebop through the story of the giants of the music, their disciples, and the mavericks and transitional figures around them. Writing not only about the best-known masters but also about figures such as J. J. Johnson, Sonny Stitt, Oscar Pettiford, Fats Navarro, Kenny Dorham, Dexter Gordon, and Tadd Dameron, Gitler conveys the excitement of the music as only someone who was there at its peak can. Fully updated, with a new chapter and a revised discography, The Masters of Bebop is an essential introduction to bop.
