Here's the definitive one-volume resource on everything jazz and blues! From their roots in African culture to their expression in the music of the twentieth century, the history of jazz and blues reveals how this truly American music came to be part of the soundtrack of contemporary urban life. Comprehensive, authoritative, and accessible, The Billboard Illustrated Encyclopedia of Jazz & Blues is organized chronologically by decade. Each section gives a historical overview plus an A to Z of influential artists and their key recordings.
