Review:

"For beginners and those who need a refresher course in the history of jazz, a great way to start."--Brian Dalton, Beat Scene

"Here is the basic history of jazz we have all been waiting for...as an introduction to the subject for the intelligent reader it is unsurpassed."--Duke Ellington

"This book tells the real story of jazz."--Louis Armstrong

"[Stearns] has set down the results of his research and his speculations in a style blessedly free of jargon and, despite the often technical nature of the subject, sufficiently lucid to make himself plainly understood."--The New Yorker
