9780028704715: Bebop and Nothingness

This collection of essays and artist profiles examines the emergence of a jazz orthodoxy founded on the values of the late 1940s and 1950s, a time when bebop still represented a departure from convention. The author argues that for many modern young musicians and their audiences, bebop has become a way of playing it safe. In this overview of the jazz and pop scenes, Davis explores the greatness of the bebop legacy and celebrates the creativity of musicians who are moving into new territory. He also conveys his listening experience in venturing beyond the range of the traditional jazz spectrum. Styles covered in these essays range from old style swing to avant garde free jazz, from gospel to klezmer, and from rock to American pop standards and rap.
