The diverse, stimulating world of the jazz singer--where the voice itself is an instrument, and the art of improvisation and self-expression reigns--is explored in this illuminating book. An A-Z reference section includes capsule biographies of such legendary vocalists as Ella Fitzgerald, Sarah Vaughn, and Louis Armstrong, as well as discographies of more than 200 jazz singers. 57 photos.
