Feature articles include analyses of the music of Johnny Dodds, Charlie Parker, Herbie Hancock, Thelonious Monk and John Coltrane, an overview of jazz theory that examines its history and purpose, a discussion of linear intervallic patterns in the jazz repertory, and a review of scientific analyses of jazz microrhythms.

Reviews

Martin's approach here as editor is an intelligent one

the articles tend to embrace several levels of theory at once, and the serious listener, player, or student should find this volume worthwhile. Cadence Magazine
