9780385286688: The Making of Jazz

A fantastic detailed overview of Jazz from its origins to the mid-sixties. Combines historical, social, academic musical,literary, entertainment, and psychological perspectives in which all components 'swing'. In spite of being from 1978, it still stands as the best book on Jazz history. Collier is balanced, was a musician himself and, last but not least, is an apt researcher.
