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.

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!
