This book is available for download with iBooks on your Mac or iOS device. Books can be read with iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


The Guardian and Observer newspapers have covered jazz in all its shapes and forms for almost a century. Jazz: From New Orleans to the new generation is a collection of reviews and profiles that charts the development of the music from its first appearance in London in 1917 right through to latter day arguments over fusion. Contributors including Kingsley Amis, Benny Green, Michael Frayn and John Fordham provide a uniquely British perspective on the history of jazz that features all the top names, from Louis Armstrong and Miles Davis to Robert Glasper. 

From Publishers Weekly

30 August 1993 – Fodham, British jazz critic for the Guardian and author of Let's Join Hands and Contact the Living , here presents a lively visual overview of jazz history. Along with hundreds of photos, time charts and other illustrations, the book covers jazz through the 1990s and offers ample descriptions of jazz instruments--voice, strings, drums and woodwinds--and musical techniques--melody, composing, dance roots and improvisation. Fodham highlights more than 250 classic jazz recordings, providing brief commentary along with a picture of each album cover. Informative biographical sketches celebrate 20 jazz greats, including Billie Holiday, Jelly Roll Morton, Lester Young and Ornette Coleman.
