Revue de presse

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. (Clive Davis, Independent)

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. (The Atlantic)

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. (Sebastian Cotney, London Jazz)

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 (James E. Perone, Library Journal)

Présentation de l'éditeur

Written by award-winning jazz historian Ted Gioia, this comprehensive guide offers an illuminating look at more than 250 seminal jazz compositions. In this comprehensive and unique survey, here are the songs that sit at the heart of the jazz repertoire, ranging from "Ain't Misbehavin'" and "Autumn in New York" to "God Bless the Child," "How High the Moon," and "I Can't Give You Anything But Love." Gioia includes Broadway show tunes written by such greats as George Gershwin and Irving Berlin, and classics by such famed jazz musicians as Miles Davis, Thelonious Monk, Duke Ellington, and John Coltrane. The book offers vibrant discussions of each song, packed with information about how the song was written, who recorded it, the song's place in jazz history, and much more. Gioia includes recommendations for more than 2,000 recordings, with a list of suggested tracks for each song. Filled with colorful anecdotes and expert commentary, The Jazz Standards will appeal to a wide audience, serving as a fascinating introduction for new fans, an invaluable and long-needed handbook for jazz lovers and musicians, and an indispensable reference for students and educators.

HASH(0x94c55900) étoiles sur 5 Cool, man!, but read on to see if this book is for you 9 juin 2012
Par Ursiform - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
This book is exactly what it claims to be, a guide to what the author considers the central repertoire of jazz. As he explains in his introduction, which is about his history and his teaching of younger jazz musicians, the book is designed to help a musician learn the repertoire he or she needs to get and keep a job. This is not a history of jazz, nor a comprehensive encyclopaedia of jazz works. It is about the 250 or so works the author considers central to the jazz repertoire.

Each work included is covered in 2-3 pages of detail. You learn who created the work and why. There are the early recordings, and how the work waxed and waned over time. Discussion of who played it, how they played it, and who didn't play it. How tempos and approaches to the work have changed over time. And how it is seen today.

Each section ends with a list of suggested recordings over the years.

As an example of what you can learn from this book, consider the following two successive entries. The Basin Street Blues were named after a street which had changed name by the time the song appeared; the name was changed back to Basin Street because of the song. The Beale Street Blues were named after a Beale Avenue; its name was changed to Beale Street because of the song. Cool!

This is a long book, and probably only jazz musicians, jazz scholars, and jazz fanatics will enjoy plowing through the book cover to cover. Many others will enjoy browsing it to find out more about their favorite songs, or to check on something they heard. Keep in mind that it is an in-depth look at key works, not a comprehensive survey, and you should be satisfied.

HASH(0x946226f0) étoiles sur 5 Do Nothin' Til You Hear 'bout These 19 août 2012
Par Roochak - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
It's important to remember that Ted Gioia chose not to write about 252 great songs, but about 252 musical packages of raw material for great improvisations. He attempts to answer the question of why jazz musicians like to play these particular songs over and over again, and his succinct (1- to 3-page) essays on each tune do a very good job of explaining the attraction for lay listeners.

What turns an "exercise in frustrated phraseology" like "Come Rain or Come Shine" into such a memorable song? How do the monotonous phrases of "Falling In Love With Love" fall into such an irresistible groove despite themselves? The author claims that his song selection represents the most frequently performed and recorded tunes in the repertoire, and the result is an almost equal division between Broadway/Tin Pan Alley and jazz originals from "Tin Roof Blues" to "Wave." (Plenty of Monk, Ellington, and Jobim, but no Radiohead or Nick Drake -- not yet.)

I love the historical anecdotes that Gioia provides as well. Bill Evans's New Jersey accent finally produces a plausible explanation for the title of Miles Davis's "Nardis," while the story of how a half million audience members turned "Muskrat Ramble" into a giant singalong at Woodstock (where Country Joe McDonald renamed it the "I-Feel-Like-I'm-Fixin'-to-Die Rag") is a masterpiece of bleak humor. This is a fun book to pull down from the reference shelf. Fun and musically enlightening.

HASH(0x9473c7ec) étoiles sur 5 Terrific book, but what's with the Kindle version? 25 février 2013

I had received this book as a gift in hardcover and loved it. Being a jazz musician and teacher, I found it fascinating and invaluable. I wanted the Kindle version so I would have it on my iPad for easy reference.

After downloading, however, this seems to be a PDF, not a Kindle book. It doesnt fit the page, doesnt have the same
features as Kindle books.

What gives? Five stars for the book, one star for Kindle version,

HASH(0x9473c5dc) étoiles sur 5 Essential reading for jazz musicians and fans 30 septembre 2012
Par Peter R. Snell - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
This is a fantastic book for musicians and for anyone interested in the jazz standard repertoire. Gioia has intriguing histories of over 250 standards, with a good dose of personal opinion and experience mixed in.

The listings of recordings are excellent. I found that a simple a two-page description of a tune can turn into an odyssey. I tracked recorded versions, compared, looked at printed versions and generally deconstructed and reconstructed chords and melody lines to get inside particular tunes. For example, listening back-to-back to a widely interpreted tune like Blue Moon is an eye-opener, from The Bad Plus's out there 2000 version, to Ellla Fitzgerald's lampooning of the Marcels' absurd best-selling doo-wop version to Tommy Dorsey's terrible attempt at corn to Dean Martin's syrupy version to Frank Sinatra's straight-ahead version with some tasty jazz trumpet thrown in; like a run-on sentence it makes for a crazy ride.

More seriously, take Rollin's Airegin, with some excellent versions by Chris Potter, Wes Montgomery and (of course) Miles Davis. Gioia gives us some insight to the tune, describing the unusual lengths of the ABC structure and how Davis's reconfiguring of one section into an 8-bar F-minor vamp gives us a portent of his later modal work.

Any gigging musician will find themselves bringing the book along with them to dig further into the tunes they are playing. Fans too will appreciate a deeper understanding of the tunes. Gioia plays a nice line between giving musicians a taste of some of the more technical issues without losing the general reader.

Is there Book 2 coming out in a couple of years (hint, hint)? I'll buy it sight unseen.

HASH(0x9475f300) étoiles sur 5 Misleading...Not a Kindle version 16 juin 2015
Par Michael Henry - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
Very disappointed. This could be a great musical reference volume, but I unknowingly purchased the so-called Kindle version...which it is not. It's a PDF or some other format which greatly t diminishes its value as a "look-up" reference. Amazon should discount the cost of a replacement print version by the cost of this fake.
