Overview

The Annual Review of Jazz Studies is dedicated to scholarly research on jazz and its related musical forms. It recognizes the growing awareness of jazz as a cultural phenomenon. All volumes include numerous musical examples, a book review section, a portfolio of jazz photographs, and bibliographic surveys. This volume contains a particularly broad range of articles, both technical and non-technical, which should appeal to both the jazz fan and the scholar. ARJS 10 introduces a new feature: "Jazz Fiction: A Bibliography from Nonjazz Journals," which identifies many important jazz publications that might otherwise elude researchers. Researchers will find "Using e-commerce Music Sites for Discographical Research" a useful survey of Internet resources. The Louis Armstrong Centennial is heralded by a warm reminiscence by Dan Morgenstern and a gallery of rare photos from the files of the Institute of Jazz Studies. Musicological treatments include articles on McCoy Tyner, Bill Evans, Charlie Parker, and Jimmy Smith. Several articles examine Thelonious Monk's unique body of work from different perspectives. In addition, there are reviews of three recent works about this singular figure. Other book reviews cover such important contributions as Scott DeVeaux's The Birth of Bebop and Ingrid Monson's Saying Something: Jazz Improvisation and Interaction. " The 'Stardust' File" traces the evolution of one of the music's most enduring standards. Finally, "Busted" tells the full story of Gene Krupa's arrest in 1943.

Editorial Reviews

The Mississippi Rag
...an interesting, very readable collection of articles on many aspects of jazz, ancient and modern....represents all schools of thought and opinion about the music.
