Synopsis: Traces the evolution of the guitar in jazz history and profiles the world's greatest jazz guitarists from the early 1900s to the present.
From Library Journal:
Grade 6 Up-Two attractive, concise, and well-researched volumes that are suitable for both recreational reading and research. The well-written texts share the pages with vintage black-and-white photographs. Readers will appreciate the fast pace of the narratives and will find them hard to put down. Gourse introduces individual artists and weaves information about their contributions to the development and evolution of jazz. Her approach is chronological and the presentation is logical and interesting. The author clearly explains musical terms, and, with aplomb, introduces her audience to a musical jargon that at the pen of another author could be technical and otherwise incomprehensible. Both volumes contain extensive source notes and compilations of suggested listening, further reading, jazz magazines, and popular Internet sites. A detailed index is appended. Fine additions to music collections.
