Through a careful analysis of seven seminal recordings in this compact and thoroughly engaging book, author Brian Harker recaptures the perspective of Armstrong's original audience without abandoning that of today's listeners. The world of vaudeville and show business provide crucial context to his readings, revealing how the demands of making a living in a competitive environment catalyzed Armstrong's unique artistic gifts.
Jazz in the Twentieth Century places jazz music within its rich historical and cultural context. The book explains how and why jazz evolved as it did, as it emphasizes chronology, historical cause and effect, and the interactions between music and American history and culture. Presented from the point of view of the original participants (musicians, critics and audiences), the book focuses on the music with thirty-five recorded examples that are accompanied by a listening chart, commentary and analysis all to provides a more vivid setting for jazz, that grounds it in the time, place and worldview of its creators. The author examines the development of jazz including its origins (ca. 1900-1914), early jazz (ca. 1914-1929), swing (ca. 1929-1945), bop (ca. 1945-1960), free jazz to fusion (ca. 1960-1975), and postmodern jazz (ca. 1975-2000). For those interested in a vivid introduction to Jazz.
