30-Second Jazzexplains, in easy, short riffs that keep you engaged, taking readers from the African-American roots of jazz all the way to today's global mix of musicians and styles. Along the way, it looks at the shape, style, andinstruments of jazz, at key personalities and recordings in the jazz canon-and at what might be expected next from this most diverse of musical forms.
