9780307291639: Jazz: A History Of America's Music

Here is the story of jazz, its singers, musicians, and impresarios who turned the "gut-bucket blues" of New Orleans into a music enjoyed around the world, presented in a monumental rendition that includes hundreds of illustrations, letters, and interviews (some never before printed) by the authors of The Civil War and baseball. The book contains fascinating portraits of Louis Armstrong, Benny Goodman, Ella Fitzgerald, Charlie Parker, and hundreds of other jazz artists. This is a companion volume to the acclaimed PBS documentary.
