Overview

A complete jazz course at one unbeatable price, ESSENTIAL JAZZ, THE FIRST 100 YEARS and its complete listening package explores the development of jazz from its nineteenth-century roots in ragtime and blues, through swing and bebop, to fusion and contemporary jazz styles. Unique in its up-to-date coverage, ESSENTIAL JAZZ devotes a full third of its length to performers of the 1960s to the present day. Extensive, accessible Listening Guides tie the history of jazz music directly to the CD selections, giving newcomers and aficionados alike a true feel for the vibrant, ever-changing sound of jazz. Free with every book, two CDs include all the musical examples from the text, as well as an "Audio Jazz Primer" that allow you to hear the key terms, basic music concepts, and jazz instruments discussed in the book.
