Description: From its roots in slavery through the swing and bebop eras to jazz-rock fusion and beyond, jazz began its long, winding odyssey across American and around the world, giving rise to a thousand different forms and a thousand great musicians. Now, in The History of Jazz, Ted Gioia tells the story of this music as it has never been told before, in a book that brilliantly portrays the legendary jazz players, the breakthrough styles, and the world in which it evolved.

Here are lively portraits of the giants of jazz -- from Louis Armstrong and Duke Ellington, to Charlie Parker and Dizzy Gillespie, to Wynton Marsalis and Pat Metheny -- intertwined with vibrant commentary on the music they created. Gioia takes us to the many worlds of jazz -- the swamplands of the Mississipi Delta, the rent parties of Harlem, the after-hours spots in Kansas City, and the other locales where the history of jazz was made -- providing much insight into the social context in which the music was born.
