Review:

This book focuses its attention on an area of consistent concern for Jazz Ensemble directors; its intriguing premise, pedagogical approach, and compilation of resource materials are sure to be of considerable value to a wide swath of music educators. (Chuck Owen, president of IAJE, professor of Jazz Studies and director of the University of South Florida's new Center for Jazz Composition,)

A fabulous resource for all jazz educators! This text superbly articulates the history of jazz education and aural skills research. Plus, it beautifully coalesces this vital research to point out needed changes in music education and teacher training. Full of valuable resources for jazz educators, it gives them professional insight for selecting great music for their ensembles. I feel well informed having this book in my collection! (Scott Wilson, president-elect, IAJE Utah Unit, Director of Jazz Studies, Snow College)
