Spotlighting saxists Stan Getz, Benny Carter, Joe Farrell, John Coltrane, Ornette Coleman and Archie Shepp, trumpeters Kenny Dorham, Booker Little and Thad Jones, and drummers Elvin Jones and Philly Joe Jones, a chapter on each describes his stylistic development and career as well as the various circumstances that combined to keep his most appealing work from getting the recognition it merits. Reviews of each artist s most musically rewarding performances period by period and CD by CD focus on the essence of the music from a musician s perspective rather than merely repeating readily available biographical detail.

A chronological listing of treasures by the book s profiled artists represents the most listener-friendly recordings of several stylistic eras from mainstream and bop to 1950s-60s straight-ahead and accessible avant-garde. Other special features describe how to get more value out of jazz listening- speech-inflected vs.

With its comprehensive background information, this jazz guide is a key resource to getting the most from some of the best jazz ever recorded.
