Various Artists: The Instrumental History of Jazz


Sign in to view read count
For all those who ask the question "how do I get started with jazz"? this deluxe 2 CD set is the perfect answer. Starting with Scott Joplin's Maple Leaf Rag (1917) and ending with Geri Allen's 1992 recording of Dolphy's Dance, this package covers a lot of ground. The 22 tracks present a representative tune from each of 10 different jazz genres. The enclosed 52 page booklet is jam packed with vital information on the music and the people who made it famous. There are listings of important artists from each era and a discography of their most popular works. The booklet also gives recommendations on 30 "must have" CDs and 20 "must have" box sets. Computer owners will be thrilled to learn that these "enhanced" CDs allow you to access rare photos and/or video clips of such legends as Charlie Parker, Dizzy Gillespie, Miles Davis, Duke Ellington and many others. The Instrumental History of Jazz is a scholarly, carefully researched compilation of classic jazz.
