"From birth dates to gig dates and from recordings to television specials, Leonard Feather and Ira Gitler have left no stone unturned in their quest for accurate, detailed information on the careers of 3,300 jazz musicians from around the world. Jazz is fast moving, and this edition clearly and concisely maps out an often dizzying web of professional associations. Knowledge of these professional alliances, along with the countless others chronicled in this book, are central to tracing the development of significant jazz movements, such as the "cool jazz" that became one of Miles Davis's hallmarks." "Arranged alphabetically according to last name, each entry of this book chronologically lists the highlights of every jazz musician's career."--BOOK JACKET
