Early Jazz is one of the seminal books on American jazz. Written by the renowned composer, conductor, and musical scholar Gunther Schuller, it is the first of three volumes on the history and musical contribution of jazz, taking us from its beginnings as a distinct musical style at the turn of the century to its first great flowering in the 1930s. Schuller explores the music of the great jazz soloists of the twenties--Jelly Roll Morton, Bix Beiderbecke, Bessie Smith, Louis Armstrong, and others--and the big bands and arrangers--Fletcher Henderson, Bennie Moten, and especially Duke Ellington--placing their music in the context of the other musical cultures of the twentieth century and offering analyses of many great jazz recordings. Early Jazz provides a musical tour of the early American jazz world. A classic study, it is both a splendid introduction for students and an insightful guide for scholars, musicians, and jazz fans

Jazz : new perspectives on the history of jazz by Nat Hentoff( Book )

1 edition published in 1974 in English and held by 474 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The names of Nat Hentoff and Albert J. McCarthy have become almost synonymous with jazz writing. Hentoff, editor of Jazz Review, writer for Downbeat, High Fidelity, New Yorker, and The Village Voice, and McCarthy, editor of Jazz Monthly, have raised Jazz beyond mere appreciation and discography to a subject which demands the rigorous application of musicological, sociological, and historical analysis. ln addition to their own contributions, the twelve articles they have commissioned by internationally noted critics and scholars provide almost revolutionary evidence of the emergence of Jazz as a serious art form."--Back cover
