Description Technical Specs

Here in its second edition, and extensively rewritten, Jazz-Fusion
is a book that describes and explains the changes that took place when jazz was
blended with rock, folk, blues, soul, country and classical music. It’s about a
kind of music that has always been controversial but has now been mostly
absorbed into the mainstream of popular music. After a brief outline of the
history of jazz, Ken Trethewey describes the events that rocked the music world
of the 1950s and 60s. He describes the processes by which the established style
of jazz was broadened. Finally, he reviews the major contributors to
jazz-fusion and provides an outline to some of the best music of its kind. The
book is written at a basic level and so a glossary of relevant musical terms is
provided. There is also an extensive discography and index.
