The Annual Review of Jazz Studies is dedicated to scholarly research on jazz and its related musical forms. It recognizes the growing awareness of jazz as a cultural phenomenon. All volumes include numerous examples, a book review section, a portfolio of jazz photographs, and bibliographic surveys. Continuing the rich tradition, this latest Annual is particularly impressive. The articles in this volume present important technical analyses of four major figures: . Booker Little . Charlie Christian . Herbie Hancock . Miles Davis In addition to an extensive black and white photo gallery, there are seven book reviews that, collectively, span the history of the music."
