Overview

Swingers and Crooners: The Art of Jazz Singing by Leslie Gourse

Jazz singing, though new in the twentieth century, has very old and mysterious roots. It originated in part from the work songs of slaves, the gospels and spirituals of African-American churches, and the blues. These influences reflect hard times in America's past, but the music that has emerged has brought a sense of joy and empowerment to many people.
