Description
Year by year, this abundantly illustrated history traces the people and events at the forefront of jazz. It charts the evolution of jazz from its West African and southern U.S. roots, beginning with the appearance of syncopated ragtime music in the 1890s. Throughout the book are hundreds of captioned images—many of them rare—from album cover artwork to color and black and white photos of live performances. Each section contains boxed features on such topics as the unique tonal qualities of the bass clarinet, jazz clubs in Paris, personality sketches, and seminal gigs and albums, and the book includes a substantial reference section with a biographical index, a glossary, and an extensive discography.

"The Chronicle of Jazz is so comprehensive in its coverage of the music, personalities, events, influences, and artifacts of jazz over more than a century that one might consider it the only primer needed to discern or rediscover the intricacies of this distinctly American art form.... This is a book worthy of any jazz fan's bookshelf."—NYJournal of Books
