Blackwell North Amer
Since its original publication in 1977, this well-balanced and beautifully illustrated book has been accepted as the standard one-volume history of jazz. Now in recognition of the many new developments in jazz over the last two decades, author Frank Tirro has expanded the text to cover the most recent jazz styles and to treat such latter-day giants as Miles Davis, John Coltrane, Ornette Coleman, and Wynton Marsalis. He has also revised the entire volume to incorporate the welter of recent jazz research and new insights into the field.
