The book is fantastic but it would have been bolstered by having examples of the described music played in the proximity of the comments about the music.
As I am already familiar with the music, the authors descriptions added meaning. If I did not already know the music I don't think that the descriptions would have been meaningful to me.
There was one mispronunciation which was repeated several times.. Camarillo was pronounced Camarillo and not Cama-rio.

Not perfect, but the best available on the subject and impressive in its own right. Sometimes repetitive in many ways, but absolutely worth it.

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!

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?
