Jazz Record Center

A New History of Jazz


965 pages

Using new source material, Shipton investigates how jazz first started, re-evalutes the transition from swing to bebop,and makes the case for jazz as a truly international music from its earliest days. All of the great names in jazz history are here, from Armstong to Miles and from Sidney Bechet to Parker and Coltrane. Shipton continues past the death of Coltrane covering the major trends in jazz over the last thirty years of the twentieth century: free jazz, jazz rock, world music influences, the new historocism of the repertory movement and the continuing internationalism of the genre.
