New Perspectives on Jazz presents a comprehensive exploration of jazz in the United States by seventeen of the most respected and recognized authorities on the subject. The contributors discuss not only the forms, styles, and personalities of jazz, but also cultural, historical, and economic issues related to the survival of this uniquely American art form. Eleven essays focus on four general areas: the influence of jazz on "traditional" concert music; the evolution of the jazz tradition (particularly since the 1950s); the state of jazz criticism; and exploring new markets for jazz performances and recordings.
