Creating Jazz Counterpoint: New Orleans, Barbershop Harmony, and the Blues by Vic Hobson

Creating Jazz Counterpoint: New Orleans, Barbershop Harmony, and the BluesCreating Jazz Counterpoint: New Orleans, Barbershop Harmony, and the Blues by Vic Hobson
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

...this book show how barbershop quartet practices relate to the tonality of the blues and how this, in turn, relates to the polyphony of New orleans Jazz....(from the author´s introduction).
This is an essay about a specific jazz, the one played in New Orleans in the '50, so it is a book for expert who wants to explore a not so commonly known part of Jazz.

Saggio sul Jazz suonato a New orleans nei primi anni '50, decisamente per intenditori.

THANKS TO NETGALLEY AND UNIVERSITY PRESS OF MISSISSIPI FOR THE PREVIEW!
