Description
This book from the editor of the New Grove Dictionary of Jazz offers a unique way of approaching and understanding jazz. Drawing on twenty-one historic jazz recordings, reproduced on a compact disc that accompanies the book, Barry Kernfeld illustrates jazz rhythm, forms, arrangement, composition, improvisation, style, and sound.

"A work that is not only long overdue but eminently readable as well". -- Jack Sohmer, Jazz Times

"For those who have a real love and curiosity for the music and some skill, reading this book will be one of the most rewarding experiences they could have. All students of the music, exponents and musicologists, should read it. It's an exceptionally good buy". -- Eddie Harvey, The Musician

"Kernfeld's writing is clear, informed by a lifetime's listening to jazz, and full of good sense.... Anyone who wants to understand jazz will need to get hold of this groundbreaking study. It's an essential work". -- Andy Hamilton, Jazz on CD
