A vivid history of jazz in a classroom text by two exceptional authors—a leading scholar and a respected critic.
Gary Giddins and Scott DeVeaux write with intellectual bite, eloquence, and the passion of unabashed fans. They explain what jazz is, where it came from, how it works, and who created it, all within the broader context of American life and culture.
