Preview — Jazz Styles by Mark C. Rgidley and Analysis by Mark C. America’s most widely used introduction to jazz, it teaches the chronology of jazz by showing students how to listen and what to notice in each style. Though originally conceived for nonmusicians and written at a college freshmen reading level, Jazz Styles also has been widely adopted in courses for musicians because of its point-by-point specification of each style’s musical characteristics and its technical appendix.
The text helps students hear how the styles differ and why the top names are important. The book’s listening guides offer in-depth analysis for 38 historic recordings contained on the 2CD Jazz Classics collection.

Grdley book is not yet featured on Listopia. Sep 12, Tara marked it as to-read Shelves: I have the first edition which i just picked up at a used bookstore–its cover is way better–graffiti supposedly sprayed by crazed jazz fans!
I stylrs this book out because besides the cover I want to learn some music theory and this book actually has a chapter on Ornette Coleman and a section on Sun Ra. I was getting frustrated that Ornette Coleman is always described as revolutionary-genious-influential in documentaries and then proceeds to get about 2 sec. Sep 23, Kay rated it it was ok.
Gridley, Jazz Styles, 11th Edition | Pearson
I was hoping this book would give a more historical perspective than it did. But for the under educated listener it exposes students to early musical theory required to become an educated jazz listener. I had the 2nd edition of this title, and it didn’t come with a CD so there’s no way that i can learn why Gershwin’s “Rhapsody in Blue” is considered by some as jazz for example.
