For fifty years The Jazz Book has been the most encyclopedic interpretive history of jazz available in one volume. In this new seventh edition, each chapter has been completely revised and expanded to incorporate the dominant styles and musicians since the booka€™s last publication in 1992, as well as the fruits of current research about earlier periods in the history of jazz. In addition, new chapters have been added on John Zorn, jazz in the 1990s and beyond, samplers, the tuba, the harmonica, non-Western instruments, postmodernist and repertory big bands, how the avant-garde has explored tradition, and many other subjects. With a widespread resurgence of interest in jazz, The Jazz Book will continue well into the 21st century to fill the need for information about an art form widely regarded as Americaa€™s greatest contribution to the worlda€™s musical culture.Drum a#39;na#39; bass rhythms have a kind of a€œirregular regularity, a€ and this is what makes them related to jazz rhythm. They act like a€œgrooves tattooed on the body, a€ and a€œ make you into a stepper moving with heightened reflexes. Listening ... For this reason also, jazz musicians have enthusiastically worked with drum a#39;na#39; bass DJs.
