About this product
- DescriptionOnce a thriving body of invative and fluid music, jazz is w the victim of destructive professional and artistic forces, says Eric Nisenson. Corruption by marketers, appropriation by the mainstream, superficial media portrayal, and sheer lack of skill have all contributed to the demise of this venerable art form. Nisenson persuasively describes how the entire jazz industry is controlled by a select cadre with a choke hold on the most vital components of the music. As the listening culture has changed, have spontaneity and improvisation been sacrificed? You can agree or disagree with Nisenson's thesis and arguments, but as Booklist says, his passion is engrossing.
- Author BiographyEric Nisenson is the author of several jazz books, including The Making of Kind of Blue. He lives in Malden, Massachusetts.
