  • Civic Jazzby Gregory Clark

    University of Chicago Press 2015; US$ 25.00

    Jazz is born of collaboration, improvisation, and listening. In much the same way, the American democratic experience is rooted in the interaction of individuals.

  • Bebopby Thomas Owens

    Oxford University Press 1996; US$ 19.95

    When bebop was new, writes Thomas Owens, "many jazz musicians and most of the jazz audience heard it as radical, chaotic, bewildering music."
