Jazz Icons: Heroes, Myths and the Jazz Tradition

By Published: December 29, 2010
Whyton calls for a more mature approach to jazz history, one which reflects the complexities of jazz and its iconic figures and which engages critically with the music's socio-historical context. Jazz Icons is essential reading for anyone interested in better understanding their relationship with jazz icons and it will no doubt change the way many of us perceive our relationship with jazz. Highly recommended.
