Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Fodham, British jazz critic for the Guardian and author of Let's Join Hands and Contact the Living , here presents a lively visual overview of jazz history. Along with hundreds of photos, time charts and other illustrations, the book covers jazz through the 1990s and offers ample descriptions of jazz instruments--voice, strings, drums and woodwinds--and musical techniques--melody, composing, dance roots and improvisation. Fodham highlights more than 250 classic jazz recordings, providing brief commentary along with a picture of each album cover. Informative biographical sketches celebrate 20 jazz greats, including Billie Holiday, Jelly Roll Morton, Lester Young and Ornette Coleman. (Nov.)
Library Journal
Fordham, jazz correspondent for the Guardian , attempts to provide a comprehensive guide to the history, instruments, musicians, and recordings of jazz. In discrete, beautifully illustrated sections, he begins with a sketchy but interesting history of jazz from its inception to the current scene. The author continues with an overview of the techniques involved in playing more than a dozen instruments. He also includes one- and two-page biographies of 20 jazz greats; descriptions of harmony, rhythm, and jazz dance; and an occasionally arbitrary compendium of classic recordings. Though distinguished by its many color photos, Jazz provides only cursory treatment of the many complex topics it tackles. For large music collections.-- David Szatmary, Univ. of Washington, Seattle
Booknews
A delightful, oversized (10x11.75"), illustrated guide to the history, key instruments and techniques, influential musicians, and landmark recordings of jazz. A particularly noteworthy feature is a guide to the top 250 classic jazz recordings, arranged by schools of jazz. Critical appraisals accompany each album, along with details of tracks, musicians, and a photograph of the cover. Foreword (1 page) by Sonny Rollins. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
From Barnes & Noble
From Dixieland to swing, bebop to fusion, and hip-hop to funk, jazz has been the constant and ever-changing soundtrack to 20th-century American life. Sometimes hot, sometimes cool, this raucous, quixotic, and fiercely improvisational force of nature was born in the joyful shouts of camp meetings and the hymns of segregated Southern churches, in the work songs of the railroad and the ring calls of the cotton fields, in the soulful wail of itinerant blues and the chugging ragtime rhythms of riverboats and sporting houses. It came of age alongside dance crazes, the movies, the record industry, and worldwide broadcasting. And with today's new crop of innovative "young lions" of jazz, this quintessentially American music shows no signs of slowing down. This essential guide documents all aspects of the world of jazz, from its fascinating history and landmark recordings to key instruments and techniques and influential musicians. All the "greats'' are here, from Scott Joplin to Winton Marsalis, Bessie Smith to Cassandra Wilson. Illustrated with evocative color and black-and-white photos, timecharts, and jazz memorabilia, Jazz is the essential reference for beginners and connoisseurs alike. 10" x 12".
