Description: In this vivid history of jazz, from its roots in the late 19th century to the present, two exceptional authors, a leading scholar and a respected critic, write with intellectual bite, eloquence, and the passion of unabashed fans. They explain what jazz is, where it came from, how it works, and who created it, all within the broader context of American life and culture.
