Du blues au bop - 1997 printing, ISBN 2070531422 - "Prives de leur culture les esclaves noirs americains s'approprient celle de leurs maitres: du cantique au negro spiritual, de la ballade au blues, de la fanfare au jazz-band, ils inventent une nouvelle musique. Parti de La Nouvelle-Orleans, le jazz conquiert l'Amerique. Bientot, la folie du swing fait danser le monde entier. Pourtant, derriere les apparences du divertissement grandit un art majeur. Et le jazz, devenu la plus savante des musiques populaires, s'invente une avant-garde: le be-bop." 2. Au-dela du bop - 1995 printing, ISBN 2070531430 - "Avec le be-bop, le jazz est entre dans l'ere moderne. Du cool au West Coast, du hard bop au jazz modal, musiciens noirs et blancs prolongent l'heritage de Charlie Parker. Le free jazz balaie bientot tout sur son passage. Mais, a la suite de John Coltrane et Bill Evans, d'autres horizons s'ouvrent aux jazzmen du mond entier. Le jazz rock, ne des enfants de Miles Davis, engendre un certain besoin d'espace. Franck Bergerot et Arnaud Merlin terminent cette epopee sur un constat: aujourd'hui, le jazz vole en eclats, s'abreuvant a de multiples sources sans renier ses origines." Interiors - previous owner's chop mark (stamp) on first page of both vols. otherwise clean and tight with no other ownership marks. Exteriors - very light edge wear, very slight lean to spines, small area of delamination at top corner of rear cover of vol. 1.
