Preview — Jazz by Frank Tirro. Since its original publication inthis well-balanced and beautifully illustrated book has been accepted as the standard one-volume history of jazz. Kristin rated it it was amazing Aug 19, Still, the eclectic evenhandedness here is a welcome change from the ivory soundchamber of many jazz purists, and profuse references to available recordings especially the Smithsonian Collection of Classic Jazz should make it easy for the zealous reader to listen as Tirro lectures.
Writing in a lively, easy style, Tirro examines the complex relationship between jazz and the social environment that both fostered and resisted its development.
