Description

The Guardian and Observer newspapers have covered jazz in all its shapes and forms for almost a century. Jazz: From New Orleans to the new generation is a collection of reviews and profiles that charts the development of the music from its first appearance in London in 1917 right through to latter day arguments over fusion. Contributors including Kingsley Amis, Benny Green, Michael Frayn and John Fordham provide a uniquely British perspective on the history of jazz that features all the top names, from Louis Armstrong and Miles Davis to Robert Glasper.
