From boogie-woogie to bebop and beyond, the sounds and rhythms of Jazz is mercurial: always creative, seldom static, frequently cultish and often contentious. The latest edition of The Virgin Encyclopedia of Jazz is the essential companion to making an acquaintance with Jazz. It will inform you and it will not talk down to you. There are over 3,500 entries detailing every artist who has had an impact on the development of jazz since it headed out from New Orleans and spread to New York, London, Paris, Montreux, Munich and way beyond. Here are all the legends whose genius is evoked in a single name - Ella, Duke, Satchimo, Bird, Miles, Trane, the Hawk, Monk and Diz - together with all the younger talent - Brad mehidau, jacky terrasson, Nicholas Payton and the youngest phenomenon of them all, Norah Jones. They line up with modern-day giants of the genre such as John Schofield, Dave Holland, Joe Lovano and Keith Jarrett. All entries have a detailed album chronology, together with a five-star rating system.The text is non-pompous, non-judgemental yet friendly and constructive. All the text has been taken from the gigantic database of The Encyclopedia of Popular Music, first published in 1992. the EPM and its spin-off series swiftly and firmly established itself as the undisputed champion of all contemporary-music reference books.
