  1. Robin

    All aspects of this transaction rated excellent.Thanks.

  2. V. Botkin

    Huge music fan, jazz neophyte. Using Ted’s book to build a standards playlist with 2-7 performances of each standard based on his recs.This book is to jazz tunes what Bill James Baseball Abstract is to baseball players. A starting point and a reference guide.Easy five starsThe one thing I’d like that isn’t included is the original record label listed for each track in the “reccomended versions” sections.

    Stories of the great jazz standards
    This book contains short articles on several hundred “jazz standards” – songs and other pieces that have entered the wide jazz repertoire. Each article discusses the background to the composition and identifies major performances and recordings. It is interesting to note how specific compositions have been dealt with in many different jazz styles, and this book is essential reading for both amateur and professional jazz musicians who want to understand the origins of the standard repertoire and how specific pieces have developed in different ways by various jazz musicians.

  4. Scot Stirling

    An outstanding resource for people who love this music, and highly readable.
    I bought the first edition and just sprung for the updated second edition, too. Ted Gioia is a very knowledgeable and thoughtful writer about American music, and this book is an outstanding collection of pieces about the jazz standards. You could make the list longer, and maybe suggest a different selection here and there, but this is a very smart and reliable resource.

  5. Anthony J. Agostinelli

    Every Jazz Standard I thought of was in Ted’s book. a great book for noodling alone by your
    Open a page. And there it is. A jazz standard. The Jazz Fake Books that one comes by is illegally printed….Ted’s is perfectly safe and can never be confiscated!
