Description by OLDIES.com:
In the 1940s, a young generation of jazz musicians forged a new style out of the swing music of the 1930s. A new breed of players like Dizzy Gillespie, Bud Powell, and Thelonius Monk transformed the jazz scene with advanced harmonies, complex syncopation and chord substitutions. Illustrated with photographs from the William Gottlieb collection, this book and sampler CD is a perfect introduction to this important era of jazz.
