[a brand-spanking new book: tight, clean, and unblemished]. (B&W photographs) "This book explores the inventions and influence of the great brass and reed players in the long history of jazz," and is one of "a series of books that examines the history of jazz through the stories of the masters and great innovators on each instrument." Discusses the early years, the big band/swing era, the bebop revolution of the 1940s, the improvisational style of modern jazz, and so on, through free jazz styles and jazz-rock fusion of the 1970s and beyond. Among the many great horn players discussed are Louis Armstrong, Dizzy Gillespie, Charlie Parker, Miles Davis, John Coltrane, and Ornette Coleman. Includes "Suggested Listening" appendix, and a bibliography. While pitched to the young adult reader, this is nonetheless a very creditable survey of its subject. (Per the jacket, this is the "library binding," but is definitely NOT an ex-library book.)
