Recommended (not required) text: available for purchase at the City College Bookstore or extensively on the web:
The primary instructional materials for this class are my self authored lecture notes, available as PDF downloads on our course Blackboard website. They contain streaming links for all required audio and video, so there's no need to purchase audio CDs. Using only my lecture notes you can complete all of the assignments in this class. The textbook is a useful reference, but is not required – because of this, if you buy one I suggest you purchase a used copy of an older edition:
Henry Martin and Keith Waters, Jazz: The First 100 Years, Second Edition (publisher: Thomson Wadsworth, ISBN: 0534628044)
See District Online Schedule for official list of required and optional textbooks and materials for this class.
