Discover the whole world of Jazz!


An inclusive, contextual, and student-friendly way to discover the whole world of jazz.


Discover Jazz presents an inclusive overview of the history of jazz, with balanced coverage of the contributions of men and women from around the world. Emphasizing the importance of context, the text presents the story of jazz not as a simple narrative, but as a series of encounters among musicians, historical events, musical influences, and social forces. And, this student-friendly text gives readers the tools they need to actively listen to–and build their own relationships with–this great American art form.
