[moderate edgewear to covers, a bit more heavily worn along spine, a few stress lines along left edge of front cover]. (B&W photographs) "With public interest in Dixieland at a peak, we commissioned [the author] to write a comprehensive book on the subject. [His] book artistically merges Analysis and Execution." Separate sections trace the historical evolution of the style -- The New Orleans Period, the Chicago Period, and the Swing and Contemporary Period (each accompanied by photographs of representative players of the period) -- and are interspersed with chapters on "The Fundamental Features of Dixieland," "The Dixieland Solo Piano Style," and "The Contemporary Dixieland Piano." Music is included for eight solos, with titles such as "Cornet Chop Suey," "Flattop's Boogie Woogie," "Heebie Jeebies," and "Hollywood Shuffle." Quite a lot of information in just 64 pages!
