For undergraduate courses in Jazz History, Jazz Survey, Evolution of Jazz, Introduction to Jazz, and Jazz Appreciation.

America's most widely used introduction to jazz text aims at capturing the minds of students to jazz, by teaching them the history of the style and showing them how to listen to jazz critically. While its chronological set up makes the book a great resource for beginners, Jazz Styles has been adopted by music history afficianados and advanced musicians because of its in-depth analysis of musical elements and its technical appendices that discuss advanced music theory concepts. This new edition incorporates coverage of new celebrated jazz musicians.
