✏The Creation of Jazz Book Summary : "As musicians, listeners, and scholars have sensed for many years, the story of jazz is more than a history of the music. Burton Peretti presents a fascinating account of how the racial and cultural dynamics of American cities created the music, life, and business that was jazz." "From its origins in the jook joints of sharecroppers and the streets and dance halls of 1890s New Orleans, through its later metamorphoses in the cities of the North, Peretti charts the life of jazz culture to the eve of bebop and World War II." "In the course of those fifty years, jazz was the story of players who made the transition from childhood spasm bands to Carnegie Hall and worldwide touring and fame. It became the music of the Twenties, a decade of Prohibition, of adolescent discontent, of Harlem pride, and of Americans hoping to preserve cultural traditions in an urban, commercial age. And jazz was where black and white musicians performed together, as uneasy partners, in the big bands of Artie Shaw and Benny Goodman. "Blacks fought back by using jazz," states Peretti, "with its unique cultural and intellectual properties, to prove, assess, and evade the "dynamic of minstrelsy."" "Drawing on newspaper reports of the times and on the firsthand testimony of more than seventy prominent musicians and singers (among them Benny Carter, Bud Freeman, Kid Ory, and Mary Lou Williams), The Creation of Jazz is the first comprehensive analysis of the role of early jazz in American social history."--Page 4 de la couv.

✏Thinking in Jazz Book Summary : A landmark in jazz studies, Thinking in Jazz reveals as never before how musicians, both individually and collectively, learn to improvise. Chronicling leading musicians from their first encounters with jazz to the development of a unique improvisatory voice, Paul Berliner documents the lifetime of preparation that lies behind the skilled improviser's every idea. The product of more than fifteen years of immersion in the jazz world, Thinking in Jazz combines participant observation with detailed musicological analysis, the author's experience as a jazz trumpeter, interpretations of published material by scholars and performers, and, above all, original data from interviews with more than fifty professional musicians: bassists George Duvivier and Rufus Reid; drummers Max Roach, Ronald Shannon Jackson, and Akira Tana; guitarist Emily Remler; pianists Tommy Flanagan and Barry Harris; saxophonists Lou Donaldson, Lee Konitz, and James Moody; trombonist Curtis Fuller; trumpeters Doc Cheatham, Art Farmer, Wynton Marsalis, and Red Rodney; vocalists Carmen Lundy and Vea Williams; and others. Together, the interviews provide insight into the production of jazz by great artists like Betty Carter, Miles Davis, Dizzy Gillespie, Coleman Hawkins, and Charlie Parker. Thinking in Jazz overflows with musical examples from the 1920s to the present, including original transcriptions (keyed to commercial recordings) of collective improvisations by Miles Davis's and John Coltrane's groups. These transcriptions provide additional insight into the structure and creativity of jazz improvisation and represent a remarkable resource for jazz musicians as well as students and educators. Berliner explores the alternative ways—aural, visual, kinetic, verbal, emotional, theoretical, associative—in which these performers conceptualize their music and describes the delicate interplay of soloist and ensemble in collective improvisation. Berliner's skillful integration of data concerning musical development, the rigorous practice and thought artists devote to jazz outside of performance, and the complexities of composing in the moment leads to a new understanding of jazz improvisation as a language, an aesthetic, and a tradition. This unprecedented journey to the heart of the jazz tradition will fascinate and enlighten musicians, musicologists, and jazz fans alike.

✏Jazz Dance Styles and Steps for Fun Book Summary : Many books have been written about Freemasonry. However, there has been very little written and published in the area of Royal Arch Masonry. To the best of my knowledge, there has only been three books published in the last one hundred and fifty years. (1) Sheville and Gould's Guide to the Royal Arch Chapter in 1867 and 1980; (2) Trunbull and Denslow's A History of Royal Arch Masonry published by the General Grand Chapter in 1956 and 1993; and (3) Steinmetz's The Royal Arch Its hidden Meaning in 1946 and 1979. This book, The History and Symbolism of Royal Arch Masonry fills this void with a clear and accurate analysis of Capitular Masonry. This book covers the world history, U.S. history, and the symbolic content of each of the four major Capitular degrees; the Mark Master, the Past Master, the Most Excellent Master, and Royal Arch, a degree considered by many to be the cope-stone of Masonry. It also covers the Order of Anointed High Priesthood. A chapter is devoted to the history and purposes of that fraternal body that is the mother lode of Capitular Masonry, the General Grand Chapter of Royal Arch Masons, International. A chapter is devoted to Royal Arch Masonry in England, Ireland, and Scotland. This book deals with facts, not myths. Historical quotes are used throughout the book in support of its historical analysis. Many original illustrations adorn the book. Comments by several leading Masons serve to illustrate the importance and strengths of this book. Larry E. Gray, General Grand Scribe, General Grand Chapter Arch Masons, International, writes, "It matters not whether the reader is a casual reader of Masonic materials, or a devout member of the fraternity seeking further light in Masonry; this book is uncomplicated reading, factual and written in layman's terms." Robert M. Seibel, M.W. Past Grand Master, Grand Lodge of F & A. Masons of Indiana writes, "The History and Symbolism of Royal Arch Masonry, will serve Royal Arch Masons throughout the English speaking world in their search for further light in Masonry. I recommend this scholarly expose in your Masonic adventures." Dennis J. Anness, Past Grand High Priest, Grand Chapter of Royal Arch of Indiana writes, "The author of this book writes in a clear and concise manner that serves all readers well. Whether you are a student of Masonic studies', or have an idle curiosity in the field, or have no knowledge of Masonry, this work is for you." Marion K. Crum, Past Illustrious Master, Grand Council of Cryptic Masons of Indiana writes, "In addition to being written in a clear, concise and understandable manner, he has eliminated many of the myths that have been attached to much of the writings of Freemasonry."

✏The History of Jazz Book Summary : Ted Gioia's History of Jazz has been universally hailed as a classic--acclaimed by jazz critics and fans around the world. Now Gioia brings his magnificent work completely up-to-date, drawing on the latest research and revisiting virtually every aspect of the music, past and present. Gioia tells the story of jazz as it had never been told before, in a book that brilliantly portrays the legendary jazz players, the breakthrough styles, and the world in which it evolved. Here are the giants of jazz and the great moments of jazz history--Jelly Roll Morton, Louis Armstrong, Duke Ellington at the Cotton Club, cool jazz greats such as Gerry Mulligan, Stan Getz, and Lester Young, Charlie Parker and Dizzy Gillespie's advocacy of modern jazz in the 1940s, Miles Davis's 1955 performance at the Newport Jazz Festival, Ornette Coleman's experiments with atonality, Pat Metheny's visionary extension of jazz-rock fusion, the contemporary sounds of Wynton Marsalis, and the post-modernists of the current day. Gioia provides the reader with lively portraits of these and many other great musicians, intertwined with vibrant commentary on the music they created. He also evokes the many worlds of jazz, taking the reader to the swamp lands of the Mississippi Delta, the bawdy houses of New Orleans, the rent parties of Harlem, the speakeasies of Chicago during the Jazz Age, the after hours spots of corrupt Kansas city, the Cotton Club, the Savoy, and the other locales where the history of jazz was made. And as he traces the spread of this protean form, Gioia provides much insight into the social context in which the music was born.
