Overview

America’s most popular introduction to jazz

 

For undergraduate courses in Jazz History, Jazz Survey, Evolution of Jazz, Introduction to Jazz, and Jazz Appreciation.

 

America's most widely used introduction to jazz text captures the minds of students by teaching the history of the style and how to actively listen to jazz. While its chronological format serves as a great resource for beginners, Jazz Styles is applicable to more advanced students because of its in-depth analysis of musical elements and its technical appendices that discuss music theory concepts.
