This text looks at the major developments in jazz during a decade which proved to be hugely exciting for the jazz world. British jazz writer, scholar and photographer Stuart Nicholson, author of the biography Ella Fitzgerald, examines the popularity of the neo-classicists, but also surveys all the major jazz movements of this renascent decade: bop and post-bop, free jazz, big bands, fusion, vocal jazz and traditional jazz. The text is accompanied by a full discography and over 80 photographs by the author. Whether the reader favours New Orleans or Chicago, avant-garde or jazz rock, third stream or West Coast, this text provides a guide to today's jazz.
