This definitive guide includes a unique chapter-by-chapter playlist for the reader.

Jazz: A Beginner's Guide is a lively and highly accessible introduction to a global musical phenomenon. Award-winning music journalist and author Stuart Nicholson takes the reader on an entertaining journey from jazz's early stirrings in America's south through to the present day, when almost every country in the world has its own vibrant jazz scene. En route we meet a host of jazz heroes past and present, from Louis Armstrong, Benny Goodman and Miles Davis, to Keith Jarrett and Kamasi Washington. Each chapter is accompanied by a playlist designed to provide a stimulating and enjoyable entry point to what has been described as the most exciting art form of all.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Stuart Nicholson leads the reader on a step-by-step journey to unlock the mysteries of jazz. Though geared towards neophytes, the most seasoned jazz fan will learn much in these pages." -- Randy Sandke - American jazz trumpeter and guitarist
"Far more than a beginner's guide, this book is Stuart Nicholson's enlightened and enlightening view of jazz - enough so to make even experienced jazz fans listen with fresh ears." -- Bill Kirchner - Musician, producer and educator
