Used Condition: Very Good Plus (VG+) All Music Guide to Jazz: The Best CDs, Albums & Tapes Paperback – June, 1994 by Ron Wynn (Editor) From Library Journal The “All Music Guide” series (All Music Guide: The Best CDs, Albums, and Tapes, 2d ed., LJ 2/15/95) should garner a warm welcome from serious musicians, jazz enthusiasts, and leisure readers alike with its compendium on jazz. Alphabetically arranged entries include 1150 artist bios and 9000 top recordings rated “best of genre,” “finest,” and “first picks” by top reviewers. “Music Maps,” divided by instrument, artist, and style, guide the peruser through each subject’s evolution over the course of the 20th century. Entries also extend coverage to such ephemeral but nonetheless interesting, topics as label histories, clubs and venues, jazz styles, and terms. Well organized, compact, and up-to-date (reflecting 1993 releases), this work represents the best published work of its kind to date. For every library.?Cynthia Ann Cordes, Onondaga Cty.
