A Brief History of Jazz Rock by Mike Baron

Jazz rock flourished from 1968 to 1974, offering a distinctively cool and innovative hybrid sound that captivated a generation--and beyond. Superstar bands like Blood, Sweat and Tears and Chicago have earned their place in popular consciousness, but the movement included many other powerful, innovative groups such as Tower of Power and Malo.

Author Mike Baron explores the history of this music fusion, its rise and fall in popularity. He offers highlights--and his own unique insights from a front-row seat in jazz rock--into what made the era so special.

A Brief History of Jazz Rock is a sax-meets-Strat bible that dares to inspire a Renaissance--to cultivate a new generation of musicians who might mix brass with bass, and help return forgotten bands like If and Dreams to their place on the main stage.
