A SHORT HISTORY OF JAZZ
This textbook is intended for both beginning and advanced students of jazz. Bob Yurochko presents a chronological history of jazz, from early West African and New Orleans roots to the Jazz Age, to the Swing Era, to the Bebop Era, through the '50s, '60s, '70s, and '80s, to the contemporary scene.
The comprehensive coverage of the contemporary jazz scene includes Latin influences, funk, rhythm and blues, new age fusion, and mainstream styles.
The book synthesizes a vast amount of material into a concise history, allowing for more listening time in the classroom. A Burnham Publishers book.
