Jazz - Then & Now, David Lee Fish.
1 David Lee Fish. Jazz - Then & Now
New York: In Tune Partners 2011 1617742325 / 9781617742323 Pap/Cdr edition Paper back New 15.2 x 1.5 x 22.9 cm 
While many books chronicle the history of jazz, few are both designed for classroom use and follow jazz's evolution to the modern day. But by speaking to the student musician, veteran performer and educator David Lee Fish has created uncommon opportunities for general music teachers to relate the work of the jazz masters, their instruments, and their musical achievements to popular music and today's jazz styles. Starting with the origins of jazz, Dr. Fish traces the genre's history as it evolved from ragtime in the clubs of New Orleans. Each of the book's 15 chapters covers an era in jazz history by focusing on the people who shaped the music, from Louis Armstrong, Charlie Parker, Dizzy Gillespie, Miles Davis, Duke Ellington, Benny Goodman, Ornette Coleman, John Coltrane, and Jaco Pastorius to the greats of today, like Wynton Marsalis, Joshua Redman, Pat Metheny, and more. Each chapter also includes a printed music example tracing the evolution of the music, offers suggested listening, and contains a brief list of historical events that helped shape the society in general (making this book a useful text for cross-curriculum study). * Covers jazz from past to present * Written for young musicians in a plain style that avoids jargon * Printed music examples and suggested lessons help teachers explain the music in a classroom * A separate teacher handbook offers lesson plans and classroom activities * Streaming audio examples at MusicAlive.com * Longer, and priced lower, than other classroom books covering similar material

Sounding Like a No-No: Queer Sounds and Eccentric Acts in the Post-Soul Era, Francesca T. Royster.
2 Francesca T. Royster. Sounding Like a No-No: Queer Sounds and Eccentric Acts in the Post-Soul Era
Ann Arbor: University of Michigan Press 2013 0472051792 / 9780472051793 Paper back New Not issued 2.5 x 15.2 x 22.9 cm 
Sounding Like a No-No traces a rebellious spirit in post–civil rights black music by focusing on a range of offbeat, eccentric, queer, or slippery performances by leading musicians influenced by the cultural changes brought about by the civil rights, black nationalist, feminist, and LGBTQ movements, who through reinvention created a repertoire of performances that have left a lasting mark on popular music. The book's innovative readings of performers including Michael Jackson, Grace Jones, Stevie Wonder, Eartha Kitt, and Meshell Ndegeocello demonstrate how embodied sound and performance became a means for creativity, transgression, and social critique, a way to reclaim imaginative and corporeal freedom from the social death of slavery and its legacy of racism, to engender new sexualities and desires, to escape the sometimes constrictive codes of respectability and uplift from within the black community, and to make space for new futures for their listeners. The book's perspective on music as a form of black corporeality and identity, creativity, and political engagement will appeal to those in African American studies, popular music studies, queer theory, and black performance studies; general readers will welcome its engaging, accessible, and sometimes playful writing style, including elements of memoir.
