A COMPLETE JAZZ COURSE: A GREAT BOOK AND A COMPLETE LISTENING PACKAGE AT ONE UNBEATABLE PRICE. Includes all the music in the book and the Jazz Audio Primer Aimed specifically at non-majors, this brief text explores the development of jazz from its nineteenth-century roots in ragtime and blues, through swing and bebop, to fusion and contemporary jazz styles.
