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. The result is a unique blend of history and in-depth guided music appreciation that will shed new light on all genres of jazz, especially for the novice, but even the seasoned listener might discover new shades in their favorite musical form after digesting this tome.
