    Title: 30-Second Jazz: The 50 Crucial Concepts, Styles & Performers
    Author: GELLY DAVE

    For its initiates, jazz is instinctive and engaging--the way that popular music should be. For non-aficionados, it can be slippery and difficult to grasp: without familiar forms or a hard-and-fast format, and largely ruled by& improvisation, jazz leaves the novice baffled, not sure how to listen, and asking "how& is& it that they know what to play?"

    30-Second Jazz& explains, in easy, short riffs that keep you engaged, taking readers from the African-American roots of jazz all the way to today's global mix of musicians and styles. Along the way, it looks at the shape, style, and& instruments of jazz, at key personalities and recordings in the jazz canon--and at what might be expected next from this most diverse of musical forms.
