Dave Gelly (au)
As the 20th century drew to a close, jazz music celebrated 100 years of innovation & experimentation. Jazz has developed rapidly & in many directions since the combination of ragtime & blues music played with syncopation was labeled “jazz”. In celebration of the first 100 years of jazz, this book presents a selection of representatives from all aspects of the genre: the New Orleans & Dixieland of the first 2 decades of the 20th cent.; the swing & jump jive of the 1920s & 1930s; bebop & its legacy of the 1940s & 1950s; the free jazz of the 1960s; jazz-rock from the 1970s; & the melting pot that was jazz in the 1980s & throughout the 1990s. Each entry includes details of the life & work of the artist or band, recommends recordings & stunning b&w photos.
