About the Author

Henry Martin is professor of music at Rutgers University — the country's only program that grants a degree in jazz scholarship. He has pursued a dual career as an award-winning composer-pianist and a music theorist specializing in jazz and the Western tonal tradition. His CD, PRELUDES AND FUGUES, was released by Bridge Records in 2004. He is coeditor of the ANNUAL REVIEW OF JAZZ STUDIES, and his books CHARLIE PARKER AND THEMATIC IMPROVISATION published in 1996 and COUNTERPOINT published in 2005 are followed by his latest title ESSENTIAL JAZZ, 3e. Keith Waters is associate professor of Music Theory at the University of Colorado at Boulder. He has written extensively on jazz improvisation and analysis. As a jazz pianist, Waters has performed in concerts, jazz festivals, and clubs throughout the United States, Europe, and Russia. He has recorded with VSOP Records, and his playing has been a featured topic in JAZZ PLAYER magazine. His most recent recording is a Chet Baker tribute with former Baker sideman Phil Urso and West Coast trumpeter Carl Saunders. He is the chair of the Jazz Special Interest Group of the Society for Music Theory and has just completed a book on the studio recordings of Miles Davis' second great quintet.

Table of Contents

"I am particularly appreciative of the author?s writing style when the book tackled potentially difficult material (like post modernism). In many ways, the author?s description is the clearest and most accessible that I have found.""This is a well written text and I enjoyed it very much. There are so many ways to interpret the history of the music, and the authors have done a great job in research and presentation."
