About this title

Synopsis:

Drawn from the author's on-air and in-person seminar, this introduction to jazz is written in a personal, informal style and requires no musical background. Focuses on guiding the beginning listener's ear, not on memorizing musical facts. Introduces musical terms and concepts only as needed, and always in connection to specific musical compositions. Discusses "what happens" and "when it happens" to alert listeners to various musical features. Offers almost 200 musical selections—many new to the Third Edition—compiled from Smithsonian anthologies like The Jazz Singers and from currently available commercial recordings. Perfect for musicians looking to brush up on jazz history, or for any music/jazz enthusiast who wants to learn more about the subject.

From the Publisher:

The first edition went through the beginning of free jazz and jazz-rock fusion; this second editon, which emphasizes listening, continues into the 1980's and early 1990's. Written in a clear, personal, informal style, the book requires no prior knowledge or experience in music. Musical terms and concepts are introduced as needed, and always in connection with specific musical compostitions. The principle focus of the book is on guiding the beginning listener's ear, not the students' memorization of names, style, periods, titles, dates, and other facts.
