While its chronological set up serves as a great resource for beginners, Jazz Styles has been adopted by music history afficianados and advanced musicians because of its in-depth analysis of musical elements and its technical appendices that discuss advanced music theory concepts. This new edition incorporates coverage of new celebrated jazz musicians, and features an online supplement MyMusicLab, which will offer quick ways for students to watch related videos and hear highlighted musical examples. This Books a la Carte Edition is an unbound, three-hole punched, loose-leaf version of the textbook and provides students the opportunity to personalize their book by incorporating their own notes and taking only the portion of the book they need to class -- all at a fraction of the bound book price.
