Dear list members
I am pleased to notify list members that, as earlier forecast, “The
Ancestry of Jazz: A Musical Family History” (ISB: 0-595-30739-6) is now
available from the publisher, and will be listed shortly by major on
site web booksellers.
Beginning with the earliest music to appear in the American colonies,
it traces the lineage of jazz through its connections with earlier
American folk and popular music, and explores its links to near
relatives like ragtime and the blues.
“The Ancestry of Jazz: A Musical Family History” expands the brief
accounts of the family history of jazz introduced in “The Loudest
Trumpet: Buddy Bolden and the Early History of Jazz”, and amplified in
“Exploring Early Jazz: The Origins and Evolution of the New Orleans
Style”, detailing the roots from which the Elemental Jazz of Buddy
Bolden was delivered into the musical environment of New Orleans in
the late 19th Century and outlining its relationships with its
contemporaries and later musical relatives.
