Jazz Theory to Accompany Instrumental Jazz 10, 20, 30
In this booklet, the goal is to help students learn the language of jazz. Every effort has been made to ensure that the language used here is the common language of jazz musicians. In order to converse intelligently about their music, students need to understand and to use theoretical terms correctly. Finally, effort has been made to try to describe aspects of jazz theory in more than one way, as not everyone always has the same learning style or understands things the same way.

Though Louis Armstrong briefly outsells the Beatles with Hello Dolly, most jazz musicians are desperate for work and many head for Europe, including bebop saxophone master, Dexter Gordon. At home, jazz is searching for relevance. During the Civil Rights struggle, it becomes a voice of protest. Befor...

Swing. The Velocity of Celebration (1937-1939)
As the 1930's come to a close, Swing-mania is still going strong, but some fans are saying success has made the music too predictable. Their ears are tuned to a new sound - pulsing, stomping, suffused with the blues. It is the Kansas City sound of Count Basie's band, and it quickly reignites the spirit of Swing. By 1938, Basie and his men are helping Benny Goodman bring jazz to Carnegie Hall. By the decade's end, Chick Webb has taken a chance on a teenage singer named Ella Fitzgerald and achi...

The next year, Louis Armstrong makes headlines when he condemns the government's failure to stand up to...
