Appealing to music majors and nonmajors alike, JAZZ: THE FIRST 100 YEARS, NON-MEDIA EDITION, 3e explores the development of jazz from its nineteenth-century roots in blues and ragtime, through swing and bebop, to fusion and contemporary jazz styles. Completely up to date, the text devotes a full third of its coverage to performers from the 1960s to the present day. It also includes expansive coverage of women in jazz. Biographies, social history, and timelines at the beginning of chapters put music into context, while expansive listening guides tie the history of jazz music directly to the downloadable selections--giving students a true feel for the ever-changing sound of jazz. The Introduction to Jazz Basics equips nonmajors with a useful preview tool on jazz fundamentals. All-new interactive pre- and post-chapter quizzes help prepare students for upcoming topics as well as review what they have already learned. In addition, Audio Primer selections, found only in MindTap, allow students to hear the key terms, basic music concepts, and jazz instruments discussed in the book.
