Appealing to music majors and nonmajors alike, JAZZ: THE FIRST 100 YEARS, ENHANCED MEDIA EDITION (with Printed Access Card), 3e explores the development of jazz from its nineteenth-century roots in blues and ragtime, through swing and bebop, to fusion and contemporary jazz styles. Completely up to date, the text devotes a full third of its coverage to performers from the 1960s to the present day. It also includes expansive coverage of women in jazz. Biographies, social history, and timelines at the beginning of chapters put music into context, while expansive listening guides tie the history of jazz music directly to the downloadable selections--giving students a true feel for the ever-changing sound of jazz. The Introduction to Jazz Basics equips nonmajors with a useful preview tool on jazz fundamentals. All-new interactive pre- and post-chapter quizzes help prepare students for upcoming topics as well as review what they have already learned. In addition, Audio Primer selections allow students to hear the key terms, basic music concepts, and jazz instruments discussed in the book.

He is coeditor of the ANNUAL REVIEW OF JAZZ STUDIES, and his books include CHARLIE PARKER AND THEMATIC IMPROVISATION, COUNTERPOINT, and ESSENTIAL JAZZ: THE FIRST 100 YEARS, 2e.

  • Insightful themed boxes highlighting "Technique and Technology", "Issues of Race", and "Insider's Guide to ..." provide enrichment material on such diverse topics as jazz transcriptions and the sociocultural background of jazz.
  • Timelines at the beginning of each chapter put the chapter's musical and historical developments in chronological context, giving students a clear view of the big picture.
  • Exam Review Questions and Key Terms at the end of each chapter help students prepare for tests on chapter material.
  • Available on MindTap streaming, the Audio Primer illustrates important terms (such as back-beat or change step, locked hands, and rhythm changes), jazz instruments, performance effects (such as a trumpet's Harmon mute without stem--Miles Davis' sound, a trombone's glissando and tailgate effect, and the walking bass), and the essentials of building a jazz band (starting with bass and drums and adding piano, trumpet, and tenor saxophone).

"I like the way it proceeds though the history of jazz without getting too heavy on music theory or too deep into the history for general education students. I also like the order of style periods and what is included."

"The strengths are the organization of the historical changes in jazz into chapters, the detailed listening guides, the assortment of photos and other media, and the selection of canonical repertoire."
