This completely updated and expanded edition of The Rough Guide to Jazz is the essential one-volume guide to the music. Ian Carr, Digby Fairweather and Brian Priestley are practising musicians and renowned jazz authorities and they bring their insiders' knowledge to a guide that features more than 2000 critical biographies, covering the spectrum from the legendary cornettist Buddy Bolden to young contemporaries like James Carter and Stacey Kent; reviews of more than 3000 albums, on both CD and vinyl, selecting the top recordings for every key artist; and classic photos from the best jazz photographers including Herman Leonard, Jak Kilby, Raffaella Cavalieri, William Gottlieb and David Redfern.
