Summary:
There is no musical form that better accompanies this century than jazz. And there is no single work that better records the characters that made this free form "The Music of the Century" than The New Grove Dictionary of Jazz. "The most comprehensive jazz reference work currently available" (Jazz Journal International), Jazz Grove searches out both fact and fiction, and differentiates between the two in discussions of both the all-time greats and the unheralded pioneers who contributed to making the history of jazz such a rich and fascinating tale. Touching on all aspects of jazz -- artists, festivals, nightclubs, record labels, instruments, traditions, and styles, this collection leaves no topic uncovered. If it is jazz it is in The New Grove Dictionary of Jazz. Includes more than 4,500 articles and over 200 unique photographs from the Driggs collection.
