    An Economist best book of the year

From Louis Armstrong's innovative sounds to the exotic compositions of Duke Ellington, Gioia covers everything from the music's history to the building blocks of improvisation. A true love letter to jazz by a foremost expert, How to Listen to Jazz is a must-listen for anyone who's ever wanted to understand America's greatest contribution to music.

    Kind of useless as an audiobook.

    Unlike the book I just finished about classical music, this audiobook has no music. Descriptions of what I should be hearing would be very useful if I had a PDF that I could go to afterwards. The PDF included with this one gives a list of artists, but no references to what was discussed in the book, or where I could go to in the book to find it again. So essentially what you get is a lot of verbal descriptions of songs.

    Loved everything about the material in this book!

    The history, advice, and interpretations were all expertly helpful. I did wish there was access to the Pdf of present and future jazz greats.

    Not really a "how to"

    This is more of a history than a guide to listening. Goia's histories are good.

    Perfect for a jazz newbie

    I know next to nothing about jazz, so picked up this book after a recommendation from someone else. I found it to be an excellent overview of jazz with great narration by a jazz cat. I would highly recommend this book to provide some basics concerning the different varieties and history of jazz music.

    Love Jazz, now I understand why!

    I have been listening to jazz for many years now. I even write about local jazz musicians to promote their performances. I loved the way Ted Gioia treated his presentation. His vocabulary is rich and evocative. His enthusiasm infectious. His rich knowledge enviable. Listen. You will be happy you did.

    wird dem eigenen Anspruch voll und ganz gerecht

    Ted Gioia ist mit diesem Buch etwas wunderebares gelungen. Er macht den Leser neugierig auf Jazz und nimmt in bei seinen Begegnungen mit dieser Kunstform so an die Hand, dass er sofort selbstständig weiter gehen kann. Großartig!
