This book was released on 12 June 2021 with total pages 514. "The book give[s] readers a peek into how jazz musicians put together performances and how their methods have differed from style to style. There is discussion of how jazz originated, and ... provides examples of the roots, the earliest recordings, and many major styles that developed later. Styles are described in ways that should help the reader get more out of listening to them. The music is presented in roughly chronological order, and the historically minded reader can use that order to examine major currents in the history of jazz. This particular book was intended, however, more as a description of the styles themselves rather than a decade-by-decade chronicle of the changing jazz scene. [It] was designed as a smorgasbord of information so readers would have a flexible reference source. [It] can be [used in] an introductory course in jazz appreciation or a single-semester course in jazz history." -Pref.
