Recenzii

Apart from his elegant prose style, the first thing you notice about Ted Gioia's approach to his subject is that the music clearly gives him no end of pleasure.
A monument to taste and scholarship ... The Jazz Standards - issed by Oxford University Press, the world's preeminent publisher of jazz titles, and informed by a single and esteemed critical sensibility - canonizes the selected works in a fashion that a Website cannot. The value of such a work, of course, depends on the acumen of the author. In virtually every instance, Gioia delivers.
Ted Gioia has created a masterwork of reference and study, an essential accompaniment to all song studies ... This book is that rare thing in music writing, a winner in terms of both content and style.
This book should be in the library of every gigging jazz musician and every serious jazz fan; to the extent that these 250-plus pieces remain in the repertory, it will be relevant for years to come
