Jazz 101 is a fascinating entry into the world of jazz, for the beginner, novice, or jazz enthusiast. Szwed takes listeners on a tour of the varied and nonlinear history of jazz, exploring how it developed from an ethnic music to become America's most popular music and then part of the avant-garde in less than 50 years. Szwed's complete overview includes the major types of jazz and significant jazz musicians of the 20th century, the roots of jazz, including its European and African influences, and recommended listening, plus appendices on jazz singers, record guides, and more.

Infinitely readable and highly entertaining, Jazz 101 is a vital tool in understanding and appreciating jazz.
