Music Historian Piero Scaruffi Publishes "History of Jazz"


Sign in to view read count
Music historian Piero Scaruffi has self-published a History of Jazz Music that mostly covers contemporary musicians, the result of three decades of research. The author's background in rock music, classical music and avant-garde music gives it a unique flavor, crossing borders and questioning stereotypes. It is also unique in that it emphasizes composition and arrangement. Following his notorious A History of Rock Music and the shorter History of Popular Music, this is the third book in a bold project to synthesize the music of the 20th century. The whole text is available for free on Scaruffi's website.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
