This book, which received very favorable reviews when it first appeared, has been completely revised, rewritten and updated. It now covers the whole period from the first African-American folk songs to the present day. giving considered coverage to such areas as free jazz and jazz fusion, whilst retaining the original enthusiastic sketches of the music before 1945 - a period which is too often neglected these days. The author's enthusiasm for the whole range of musical experiences which are now encompassed by the term 'jazz' makes this an invaluable introduction.
