A complete jazz chronology, ESSENTIAL JAZZ delivers a thorough and engaging introduction to jazz and American culture. Designed for nonmajors, this brief text explores the development of jazz, from its 19th century roots in ragtime and blues, through swing and bebop, to fusion and contemporary jazz styles. Unique in its up-to-date coverage, one-third of ESSENTIAL JAZZ is devoted to performers of the 1960s through present-day performers. The text's flexible organization and clear, interesting presentation are designed to appeal to students with little or no music background. Accessible, informative Listening Guides provide a rich sociocultural context for each selection, giving both newcomers and aficionados a true feel for the vibrant, ever-changing sound of jazz. Available with InfoTrac Student Collections http://gocengage.com/infotrac.

His CD, PRELUDES AND FUGUES, was released by Bridge Records in 2004. He is coeditor of the ANNUAL REVIEW OF JAZZ STUDIES, and his books CHARLIE PARKER AND THEMATIC IMPROVISATION published in 1996 and COUNTERPOINT published in 2005 are followed by his latest title ESSENTIAL JAZZ, 3e.
