Synopsis

Breaking down walls between genres - classical, jazz, and popular, this book offers an integrated view of twentieth-century music. It demonstrates how Duke Ellington's music is as vital to musical modernism as anything by Stravinsky, and has had a lasting impact on jazz and pop that reaches from Gershwin to contemporary R&B.
