Jazz Not Jazz

by David Ake, release date 2012-06-12, Jazz Not Jazz Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Jazz Not Jazz books, What is jazz? What is gained—and what is lost—when various communities close ranks around a particular definition of this quintessentially American music? Jazz/Not Jazz explores some of the musicians, concepts, places, and practices which, while deeply connected to established jazz institutions and aesthetics, have rarely appeared in traditional histories of the form. David Ake, Charles Hiroshi Garrett, and Daniel Goldmark have assembled a stellar group of writers to look beyond the canon of acknowledged jazz greats and address some of the big questions facing jazz today. More than just a history of jazz and its performers, this collections seeks out those people and pieces missing from the established narratives to explore what they can tell us about the way jazz has been defined and its history has been told.

Blowin Hot And Cool

by John Gennari, release date 2010-09-15, Blowin Hot And Cool Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Blowin Hot And Cool books, In the illustrious and richly documented history of American jazz, no figure has been more controversial than the jazz critic. Jazz critics can be revered or reviled—often both—but they should not be ignored. And while the tradition of jazz has been covered from seemingly every angle, nobody has ever turned the pen back on itself to chronicle the many writers who have helped define how we listen to and how we understand jazz. That is, of course, until now. In Blowin’ Hot and Cool, John Gennari provides a definitive history of jazz criticism from the 1920s to the present. The music itself is prominent in his account, as are the musicians—from Louis Armstrong and Duke Ellington to Charlie Parker, John Coltrane, Roscoe Mitchell, and beyond. But the work takes its shape from fascinating stories of the tradition’s key critics—Leonard Feather, Martin Williams, Whitney Balliett, Dan Morgenstern, Gary Giddins, and Stanley Crouch, among many others. Gennari is the first to show the many ways these critics have mediated the relationship between the musicians and the audience—not merely as writers, but in many cases as producers, broadcasters, concert organizers, and public intellectuals as well. For Gennari, the jazz tradition is not so much a collection of recordings and performances as it is a rancorous debate—the dissonant noise clamoring in response to the sounds of jazz. Against the backdrop of racial strife, class and gender issues, war, and protest that has defined the past seventy-five years in America, Blowin’ Hot and Cool brings to the fore jazz’s most vital critics and the role they have played not only in defining the history of jazz but also in shaping jazz’s significance in American culture and life.

Writings In Jazz

by Nathan Tate Davis, release date 1992, Writings In Jazz Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Writings In Jazz books, The title "writings" is slightly misleading; this is not a reader but a survey of jazz and jazz musicians from its inception through the rising stars of the 1990s. Davis (U. of Pittsburgh) writes in the personal tone of someone who has long been active in the jazz scene (the preface is by Donald Byrd, one of many musicians Davis has played with), offering many frank opinions that seek to correct historic misconceptions about jazz and jazz musicians. The audio CD features classic works from Louis Armstrong, Billie Holiday, and Coleman Hawkins, among others. Annotation copyrighted by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
