Abstract:

"The Fourth Edition features approximately 20 percent new musical examples and extended coverage of jazz, including a brief historical survey and many examples of the idiom. Offering a more integrated treatment of style and history, the text also places greater emphasis on music notation, providing more actual printed music and a guide to effective use of the printed score. This edition maintains the close relationship between textual discussion and recorded examples, interrelating great music from a wide variety of periods, styles, and social settings." -- Back cover.
