Grade 8-Up?Gourse presents a thorough, highly detailed account of the key horn players, including Louis Armstong, Charlie Parker, Miles Davis, and countless others. Some chapters focus on the development of a player's style and how it influenced other performers and jazz itself, while others give brief biographies of several musicians. A chapter entitled "The Jazz Horn Tree" presents a chronology of the development of jazz horn playing. There is a wealth of information here, written in a straightforward journalistic style. Some musical terms are explained in context, but it is assumed that readers will be familiar with others. Well-captioned, black-and-white photos of the musicians appear throughout. An extensive discography and suggestions for further reading are included. Sources are well documented. The index lists only players' names. A useful title for research projects.?Renee Steinberg, Fieldstone Middle School, Montvale, NJ
