Description

Instantly acquire all the knowledge you need to pass as an expert in the world of jazz. Never again confuse your corn with your jam, your mouldy fig with your funky smelly, or your hep with your hip. Bask in the admiration of your fellow enthusiasts as you explain the difference between bebop and hard bop, and pronounce confidently about the provenance of the word ‘jazz’ (and, indeed, ‘boogie’).

The author

Author, music critic, artist and musician, Peter Gammond was born in Northwich, Cheshire in 1925, inheriting his musical interests from his father who was a cellist. He joined the Decca Record Company in 1952 as a music editor leaving in 1960 to become a freelance writer, critic and author. He has written over forty books on jazz, ragtime and the music-hall, including The Oxford Companion to Popular Music, and, on the classical side, books on Schubert, Mozart, Offenbach and record collecting.
