    Jazz Journey: A Guide for Listening explores jazz music from its 19th Century forerunners through today. The text takes readers on an historical audio and video tour of select jazz performances of the last hundred years.

    All of the major styles of jazz—including the predecessors of jazz, Ragtime and Blues—are covered, including New Orleans style, Chicago style, Stride piano, Swing, Bebop, Cool, Hard Bop, modal, Free jazz, freer jazz, and Fusion.

    Major performers include Louis Armstrong, Bix Beiderbecke, Fats Waller, Benny Goodman, Count Basie, Duke Ellington, Charlie Parker, Dizzy Gillespie, Gerry Mulligan Dave Brubeck, Miles Davis, Horace Silver, John Coltrane, Bill Evans, Ornette Coleman, Herbie Hancock, and Keith Jarrett, among others.

    For easy access to the music described in the text, the revised first edition features an online, active learning component with links to audio and video recordings, as well as listening guides.

    Jazz Journey is an ideal reading and listening experience for jazz appreciation courses for non-majors. It can also be used in jazz history classes for music and jazz studies majors.

    John Valerio holds a doctorate in music composition from Temple University and teaches in the School of Music at the University of South Carolina. In addition to teaching, Dr. Valerio is a jazz pianist and composer of jazz and classical music. He has played with outstanding jazz artists, including Lee Konitz, Jon Faddis, Stanley Clarke, Steve Gilmore, and Chris Vadala. In 2006, he released his first album as a leader—The Altoona Sessions. Dr. Valerio is the author of ten books on jazz piano styles and techniques.
