Francis Davis (au). In this informative & insightful book, esteemed jazz critic Francis Davis traces the rise of such 1980s stars as Wynton & Branford Marsalis, Anthony Davis, David Murray, Bobby McFerrin, Stanley Jordan, & Billy Bang, while assessing the continuing influence of such father figures as Ornette Coleman, Sonny Rollins, Miles Davis, George Russell, John Lewis, & Roscoe Mitchell. In the process, Davis discusses the low visibility of jazz in the media, the uneasy relationship of jazz to pop, & the surprising emergence of the composer as the pivotal figure in what has always been regarded as the improviser’s realm. This book is a superb companion to some of the best music & musicians of an eventful decade. “Informative, insightful, & knowledgeable.”
