Product Overview

This work explores the musical, creative and artistic contributions of 15 leading jazz bassists of the Fifties. A chapter on each one offers a timeline as well as biographical information detailing the unfolding of the player''s artistic development and professional career. More than mere history, the book reveals the how''s and why''s behind each one''s lasting stylistic achievements via in-depth analysis of a handful of his top recorded tracks. Taken in total, the analyses of 70 such tracks spotlight the very best jazz bass music of the period. No chapter is complete without the author''s comprehensive listing of each bassist''s greatest recorded performances. Though focusing on bass artists and their music, this book is an invaluable resource of jazz background for all devoted jazz listeners seeking to expand their appreciation and enjoyment of the art. For the bassist, it identifies and dissects little-known recorded gems as key to understanding the elements of superior performance.
