Das Jazz Theorie Buch ist wohl das umfangreichste Werk seiner Art. Es ist ähnlich aufgebaut wie der vom selben Autor bei Advance Music erschienene Bestseller Das Jazz Piano Buch und genauso praxisbezogen. Theoretische Sachverhalte werden immer anhand musikalischer Beispiele und Transkriptionen von berühmten Aufnahmen der Jazzgeschichte erklärt. Von den theoretischen Grundlagen wie Intervalle, Akkord/Skalen-Theorie (Dur, Moll, Vermindert, Ganzton, Bebop, Pentatonik etc.) über die II-V-I Verbindung, Blues und Rhythm Changes bis hin zu Salsa und Latin Jazz werden in 24 Kapitel alle wichtigen Themen ausführlich behandelt. Daneben enthält das Buch nützliche Information über die Interpretation von Lead Sheets (Melodie mit Akkordsymbolen), eine ausführliche Repertoire-Liste mit Quellenangaben und Hinweisen auf Play-Along-Aufnahmen und eine Diskographie. Vier höchst interessante Kapitel mit mehr als 100 Seiten sind dem Thema Reharmonisation gewidmet. Titles: Teil I Theorie: Akkorde und Skalen * Teil II Improvisation: Das Spielen über Changes * Teil III Reharmonisation * Teil IV Das Repertoire * Teil V Sonstiges.

Die Autobiografie der legendären Jazzsängerin Billie Holiday! "Man hat mir gesagt, dass niemand das Wort ›Hunger‹ so singt wie ich. Genauso das Wort ›Liebe‹. Vielleicht liegt das daran, dass ich weiß, was diese Worte bedeuten. Vielleicht liegt das daran, dass ich stolz genug bin, mich an all das erinnern zu wollen, an Baltimore und Welfare Island, das katholische Heim und das Jefferson-Gericht, an den Sheriff vor unserm Haus in Harlem und die Städte in ganz Amerika, wo ich meine Beulen und Narben abbekommen habe, Philadelphia und Alderson, Hollywood und San Francisco, an jede Kleinigkeit. Alle Cadillacs und Nerze der Welt - und ich hatte von beiden schon einige - können das nicht aufwiegen oder vergessen machen. Alles was ich je von den Menschen gelernt habe, liegt in diesen beiden Worten. Zuerst braucht man etwas zu essen und ein bisschen Liebe, bevor man sich die Predigt von irgendjemandem über richtiges Verhalten anhören kann. Alles, was ich bin und was ich vom Leben will, sagen diese beiden Wörter."
