The New Grove dictionary of jazz by George Grove( Book )

76 editions published between 1199 and 2016 in 3 languages and held by 3,210 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

There is no musical form that better accompanies this century than jazz. And there is no single work that better records the characters that made this free form "The Music of the Century" than The New Grove Dictionary of Jazz. "The most comprehensive jazz reference work currently available" (Jazz Journal International), Jazz Grove searches out both fact and fiction, and differentiates between the two in discussions of both the all-time greats and the unheralded pioneers who contributed to making the history of jazz such a rich and fascinating tale. Touching on all aspects of jazz -- artists, festivals, nightclubs, record labels, instruments, traditions, and styles, this collection leaves no topic uncovered. If it is jazz it is in The New Grove Dictionary of Jazz. Includes more than 4,500 articles and over 200 unique photographs from the Driggs collection
Pop song piracy : disobedient music distribution since 1929 by Barry Dean Kernfeld( )

12 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 1,437 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The music industry's ongoing battle against digital piracy is just the latest skirmish in a long conflict over who has the right to distribute music. Starting with music publishers' efforts to stamp out bootleg compilations of lyric sheets in 1929, Barry Kernfeld's Pop Song Piracy details nearly a century of disobedient music distribution from song sheets to MP3s. In the 1940s and '50s, Kernfeld reveals, song sheets were succeeded by fake books, unofficial volumes of melodies and lyrics for popular songs that were a key tool for musicians. Music publishers attempted to wipe out fake books, but after their efforts proved unsuccessful they published their own. Pop Song Piracy shows that this pattern of disobedience, prohibition, and assimilation recurred in each conflict over unauthorized music distribution, from European pirate radio stations to bootlegged live shows. Beneath this pattern, Kernfeld argues, there exists a complex give and take between distribution methods that merely copy existing songs (such as counterfeit CDs) and ones that transform songs into new products (such as file sharing). Ultimately, he contends, it was the music industry's persistent lagging behind in creating innovative products that led to the very piracy it sought to eliminate
What to listen for in jazz by Barry Dean Kernfeld( Book )

19 editions published between 1995 and 2011 in English and held by 1,212 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Barry Kernfeld provides a thorough, learned, and accessible introduction to jazz, discussing its musical concepts, procedures, and styles and providing the background necessary to fully enjoy this musical art. The book is organized around twenty-one historic jazz recordings - from the New Orleans Rhythm Kings' Tin Roof Blues (1923) to Ornette Coleman's Honeymooners (1987) - that are analyzed in the text and included in a compact disc that accompanies the book. Barry Kernfeld draws from these musical works to illustrate jazz rhythm, forms, arrangement, composition, improvisation, style, and sound (recording fidelity, tuning systems, instrumentation, and timbre). Included in the book are more than one hundred notated music examples keyed to the compact disc and a biographical dictionary of musicians who figure prominently on the disc

Through accounts by jazz musicians Steve Swallow and Pat Metheny, The Story of Fake Books also reveals the definitive history of the most popular fake book, one that has acquried a legendary status among jazz musicians : an anthology of jazz tunes called The Real Book.
