Abstract:

Now in its second edition, the All Music Guide to jazz has become the definitive reference on jazz recordings and performers. Designed for serious jazz fans and newcomers alike, this easy-to-use, comprehensive guide profiles the lives and work of 1,440 key jazz artists, reviewing and rating each one's best albums - more than 13,200 top recordings in all. This edition has been fully updated and expanded throughout, featuring thousands of reviews new to this edition, written by noted jazz critics and seasoned music journalists. The reviewers also rate the recordings by best-of-genre, best-of-artist, and first pick. Enlightening biographies and anecdotal career histories of major artists paint a complete portrait of each one's evolution and importance in the world of jazz. Other special features include: an overview of jazz history; jazz styles; influential producers; important record labels; music maps charting the evolution of key instruments; and resources for further exploration.
