Thorough, Thought provoking and clear

Ted Gioia has been writing about jazz for many years now. He is clear and informative and his style is easy but authoritative. I have been listening to jazz and playing it for decades and I always learn new things from his writing. If you want an overview of Jazz this is the book for you!

Excellently written, read by a robot

Would you try another book written by Ted Gioia or narrated by Bob Souer?

I would avoid all books read by Bob Souer, is he even real? It sounds like this is read by an automated computer program. Shame, as the book is very good.

Who might you have cast as narrator instead of Bob Souer?

Time well spent

This was time well spent. Great detail on a subject that requires good research. Recommend that this bought and used as a reference.
