KIRKUS REVIEW

Alongside the works of Hodeir and Sternes, The New Jazz Book will undoubtedly placed, and justifiably. It's a classic! In Berendt's paralleling of trend to trend in the evolution of Jazz and European music; in his probe of all the dimensions of music- what it is, why it is, where it has been, where it is, going, why it is going there. In his analysis of synthesis of all elements of jazz -- the instruments, the instrumentalists, the vocalists, rhythm-and-blues, etc., a staggeringly catholic mind is revealed.
