Szwed takes readers on a tour of the music’s tangled history, and explores how it developed from an ethnic music to become North America’s most popular music and then part of the avant garde in less than fifty years. Jazz 101 presents the key figures, history, theory, and controversies that shaped its development, along with a discussion of some of its most important recordings.
