The jazz paradox: why has an art that has so transformed the world’s music in barely 100 years, remained so widely misunderstood? Jazz shines light on the subject for those intrigued by its influence and creativity, but also mystified by its occasionally esoteric habits. From charting the first wave of jazz to breaking down its full history, Jazz will lead you from the form’s African-American slave origins to the individuals who shaped the most innovative musical genre of the 20th century.

Miles Davis‘ autobiography gives us an insight to jazz in the middle of the 20th century like no other book. He was on the inside and his insights are therefore very personal and possibly like no one else could have written. A book which should be on this list is But Beautiful: A Book About Jazz by Geoff Dyer. I find it amazing that I found a love for jazz through reading this book. Love, love, love it and the author. Spellman’s Four Lives in The Bebop Business Val Wilmer’s As serious as your life Mezz Mezzrow Really The Blues.

Jazz encompasses a bewildering range of musical styles and players. Some players, however, have become legendary—not only did their work shape the course of modern jazz, but their influence on contemporary musicians is as strong as ever. In Jazz Heroes, John Fordham examines the lives and work of six such artists—pianist Thelonious Monk, guitarist Wes Montgomery, singer Ella Fitzgerald, trumpeter Dizzy Gillespie, and saxophonists John Coltrane and Gerry Mulligan. Packed with stunning archive photos and interviews with musicians and writers who knew them personally, and with a discography plus special features on contemporary culture and musical trends, Jazz Heroes is both a lasting testimony to these musicians and a fascinating survey of jazz in the postwar era. John Fordham is a noted jazz writer and critic. He is the author of Jazz, Jazz Man, and Jazz on CD.
