Jazz a regional exploration by Scott Yanow ( )
10 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 1,286 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Considered by many audiophiles to be the one true form of American music, jazz evolved in many "scenes" throughout the country. The "Young Lions" jazz movement in New Orleans spread up the Mississippi in the Northern Migration. St. Louis and Sedalia, Missouri, became jazz centers, while Count Basie led a revolution in Kansas City. Chicago in the 1920s - the era of Jelly Roll Morton, King Oliver, and Louis Armstrong - became a center of freewheeling jazz, while classic jazz and swing took root in New York City in the '30s and '40s behind Duke Ellington, Cab Calloway, and Benny Goodman, the "King of Swing." And while "boogie woogie" and "hot jazz" grew out of the Big Apple, a generation of experimental musicians such as Chet Baker and Stan Kenton stood at the forefront of West Coast jazz and the Los Angeles scene. Noted jazz writer Scott Yanow carefully traces the evolution of jazz from regional manifestations to an increasingly national language at the turn of the 20th and 21st centuries."--BOOK JACKET
Bebop by Scott Yanow ( )
8 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 1,164 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"On the heels of swing in 1945, Bebop changed everything. This is the ultimate guide to the innovators, tunes, and attitudes that evolved jazz from a dance music to an art form. Through anecdotal biographies and evocative photos, Bebop portrays the daring musicians who became virtuosos: the Bebop giants, the classic beboppers, and later Bebop figures. Plus you get reviews and ratings of recordings that make (or don't make) the cut, and incisive essays on Bebop then and now - historical insight not found in other guides."--BOOK JACKET

4 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 591 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Since the birth of jazz, the trumpet has played a lead role in virtually every jazz style, and it shines in its own golden age today. There is no shortage of triumphs and tragedies in the lives of the brilliant jazz musicians who choose this instrument, and you'll meet 479 of them here." "Trumpet Kings unveils the stories behind great trumpeters past and present who drive the jazz world - such royalty as Louis Armstrong, Dizzy Gillespie, Miles Davis, and Wynton Marsalis - plus many lesser-known but noteworthy players." "What sets this book apart is the intimacy of its profiles, each written like a short story tracing the "plot" of the artist's life. Highlighting why these colorful musicians are so significant, author Scott Yanow describes each jazz trumpeter's unique personal and musical traits, intriguing life experiences, relationships with other influential players, career milestones, and key recordings. Through these engaging stories, you'll explore the entire history of jazz trumpet."--BOOK JACKET

4 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 541 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In this comprehensive volume, Scott Yanow traces the history of jazz through its recordings. Most live performances from this rich 60-year period are lost forever, but jazz fans can experience a rich legacy of recorded work.

Along the way he takes readers on a journey through the golden ages of jazz, covering styles such as New Orleans jazz, swing, bebop, cool jazz, Dixieland, hard bop, soul jazz, the avant-garde, and fusion - and showing how these forms diverge, develop, and continue to flourish."--BOOK JACKET

"This guide opens with the very beginnings of jazz, exploring its seeds in ragtime, early blues, and blues-infused New Orleans jazz from 1895-1916. But the heart of the classic jazz era - and this book - belongs to 1917-1933. Through anecdotal biographies and evocative photos, you'll meet the musicians who defined the Jazz Age, from the Original Dixieland Jazz Band, the first jazz group to record, to the artists poised to usher in swing, such as Louis Armstrong to Benny Goodman. Classic Jazz gives you incisive reviews and ratings of recordings that make (or don't make) the cut, and essays brimming with historical insight not found in other guides."--BOOK JACKET
