1 Bergerot, Franck et Merlin, Arnaud. L'EPOPEE DU JAZZ. 1. DU BLUES AU BOP. 2. AU-DELA DU BOP. 2 VOLUME SET.
Decouvertes Gallimard Soft Cover Very Good 
160 pp, 160 pp, 7" H - 2 volume set. Profusely illustrated in colour and b&w with photographs, reproductions. 1. 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.

148 pp, 8 3/4" H. Colour (4) and b&w plates, b&w maps. "The author has visited, in person, every single building of note in all Spain, while viewing the incomparable landscape and taking note of Spanish music, the art and costume of Spain, and Spanish persons. He writes of such masterworks as Burgos Cathedral, Santiago de Compostela, or the Alhambra, but he is no less interested in places which are equally characteristic and whose merits are far less well known. Thus, he is equally at home with the people and their customs; the processions of Holy Week, the Gypsies, the bull fights, the cave dwellers of the Barrio de Santiago." Very small business stamp at bottom of rear pastedown, very light edge wear, minor rubbing, small bump to top corner of boards. Dust jacket is price-clipped; has light browning to spine, flap-folds and some edges; light edge wear/wrinkling; a few very small edge tears; protected in a mylar sleeve.
