Descripción

Today, jazz history is dominated by iconic figures who have taken on an almost God-like status. From Satchmo to Duke, Bird to Trane, these legendary jazzmen form the backbone of the jazz tradition. Jazz icons not only provide musicians and audiences with figureheads to revere but have also come to stand for a number of values and beliefs that shape our view of the music itself. Jazz Icons explores the growing significance of icons in jazz and discusses the reasons why the music's history is increasingly dependent on the legacies of 'great men'. Using a series of individual case studies, Whyton examines the influence of jazz icons through different forms of historical mediation, including the recording, language, image and myth. The book encourages readers to take a fresh look at their relationship with iconic figures of the past and challenges many of the dominant narratives in jazz today.

 Contains free-standing case study chapters on legendary figures including Louis Armstrong and Duke Ellington, which make the book well-suited to pedagogical use  Provides readers with fresh insights into the lives and music of jazz greats who still command a huge following  Draws upon examples from film, literature and advertising to provide a choice of approach for the reader
