Jazz and pop overlapped in the mid-20th century, making both genres more vital and creative, and here Will Friedwald profiles 57 essential albums, discussing in detail what makes them so relevant. His browsable guide explores both standard favorites and hidden gems, including Peggy Lee's Black Coffee, Frank Sinatra's In the Wee Small Hours, Nat King Cole's After Midnight, Judy Garland's Carnegie Hall concert, and Tony Bennett's wonderful collaborations with Bill Evans. Here too Friedwald spotlights Jo Stafford, Fred Astaire, Blossom Dearie, Lena Horne, and Ella Fitzgerald.

"Will Friedwald's thoughtful analysis and insight into the background and nuances of the music by the artists featured in his book make each song a more enriching experience for casual listeners and music aficionados alike. I'm honored to be included and grateful to Will for keeping the American Songbook and jazz classics relevant for generations to come."—Doris Day
