This audiobook was so good that I purchased the paperback, just to have as a reference. The author does a great job with the various stages of the development of jazz. The only downside (and it's not enough to keep this from being a 5 star book) is that the narrator has to read all of the discography references. This was a WONDERFUL book. Best read if you already have a little bit of knowledge of basic music terminology (what improvisation is, etc..). Highly recommend!

A pretty good overview of Jazz. Any writer of a subject like jazz has to pick and choose what he will talk about and what to leave out. Everyone will have some quibble, but overall it's a decent introduction. It is a little outdated since it came out before the era of iTunes and Spotify.

I have to admit I didn'T finish this book. I'm baffled by how anyone can make such an interesting and entertaining subject as jazz so boring.
