Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Handy resource for jazz listeners and hardcore fans. Spanning players from eighty years of history, this bold book steps forward and claims who are the greatest. Compiled from an extensive survey conducted with the best jazz minds in the education, publishing and entertainment worlds, noted jazz journalist Gene Rizzo summarized the chosen and presents a concise bio on the essence of these jazz giants. Choices were made on the basis of chops, originality, creativity, and degree of influence. This book will either confirm some readers' opinions or open debate with others, but ultimately the book provides an impressive summary of the greatest jazz piano players of all time. A photo accompanies each listing * Landmark recordings are listed * Extra lists include the next twenty to be selected, the top women players and an alphabetical list of all the other players considered

Book News Annotation:

Musician and composer Rizzo (piano, Beaver College) describes the achievements of jazz pianists selected by jazz specialists at the Hal Leonard Corporation, and educators and musicians. Choices were based on creativity, degree of influence, and command of the instrument; extra points were awarded for a convergence of the three. Only one woman made the cut, but he says maybe there will be another survey in a decade or so that maybe more will make it into. This of course brings into some question the claim `of all time' in the title. There is no index or bibliography.
