There’s no shortage of jazz histories on the shelves of university libraries or the more finely stocked book superstores, but Giddins and DeVeaux have come at their broad subject with something of a unique approach that blends musicology and historiography into a compelling book that will teach readers a bit of music theory while enhancing their listening pleasure of all styles of this American musical creation.
