Discover Jazz b John Edward Hasse and Tad Lathrop
Pearson, 2012

"The most thorough and well-presented text on jazz history I've seen in a long time. This one has it all—the music, the analysis, the musicians, the socio-economic factors, and the foundation material needed to fully grasp the material."
— John Davis, University of Colorado

"An extremely thorough jazz history text that provides the expected chonological jazz timeline while offering a wealth of historical and cultural context."
— Barry Long, Bucknell University

"Clear conceptual guidance and a vocabulary for developing listening skills."
— Allen Livermore, Berkshire Community College

"This book walks the fine line of social, political, musical, and historical aspects of the twentieth century better than any other jazz text I have read."
— Jim Scully, California State University, Bakersfield

"This photo-rich, snappily laid-out survey covers its subject with genuine thoroughness."
Booklist

"A well-detailed, richly illustrated, highly readable, and often compellingly written chronicle of the development and current status of jazz through revelation of the music's character of sound, aesthetic appeal, and connection to American society."
— Richard Domek, American Music
