This is the ultimate guide to two musical styles that have fundamentally influenced popular music. Divided into eras from the Early Years to the Contemporary Era, you can learn about this music's development from its 19th-century African-American roots up to the present day. Each era has a Sounds & Sources discussion before introducing the Key Artists and A-Zs of lesser artists. A section on Styles is also included, covering Ragtime to Bebop and Texas Blues to Rhythm & Blues. A section on instruments, a glossary and evocative photographs complete the comprehensive experience. Whether a fan of Duke Ellington, Billie Holiday or Ray Charles this is the book for you.
