Discover the whole world of Jazz!

An inclusive, contextual, and student-friendly way to discover the whole world of jazz.

Discover Jazz presents an inclusive overview of the history of jazz, with balanced coverage of the contributions of men and women from around the world. Emphasizing the importance of context, the text presents the story of jazz not as a simple narrative, but as a series of encounters among musicians, historical events, musical influences, and social forces. And, this student-friendly text gives readers the tools they need to actively listen to–and build their own relationships with–this great American art form.

Teaching and Learning Experience

Personalize Learning- The new MyMusicLab delivers proven results in helping students succeed, provides engaging experiences that personalize learning, and comes from a trusted partner with educational expertise and a deep commitment to helping students and instructors achieve their goals.

Improve Active Listening- The authors bring the music to the foreground for the student, helping students listen to and analyze the music.

Engage Student- The design of Discover Jazz alone will engage students, while key features such as the Closer Look and Issues boxes will actively involve them in learning about jazz throughout the text.

Support Instructors- Discover Jazz comes with a complete support package for the instructor ranging from MyMusicLab and ClassPrep, to testing material.
