Szwed's guide to jazz will help curious culturephiles learn about this popular, yet occasionally intimidating, art form. Forged out of several of the world's most diverse musical traditions (classical, folk and pop), jazz continues to evolve in myriad new directions. Covering all the key basis, with a history, analysis of key figures, some rudiments of music, a discography and a bibliography, Szwed will also speak of jazz's unique history and discuss its rapid mutations and incredible political and cultural influence.
