Publisher's Comments

Jazz historian Yanow comments on recordings of jazz music composed or performed between 1895 and 1975. His descriptions are categorized by era first and artist second. Alongside the discussion of recordings are evaluations of artists' careers and their contributions to music. Yanow is not shy about sharing his opinion, and his enthusiasm for the music is often front and center. His knowledge and coverage are relatively comprehensive.
