Raffaelli, "Guia de Jazz Em CD", (Guide to Jazz on CD) Jorge Zahar
Editor, [Brazil], 257 pp. (2000).
I have received my copy of this book and it is a
very concise, pocket-sized guide to some of the most popular artists
in jazz. Not everyone in jazz is covered here - with the book coming
in at 257 pages - and only some of an artists CDs are talked about in
the listings (i.e., not everything a particular artist has out on CD
is listed). But it is still a very handy reference guide when looking
for some of the best recordings a particular performer has recorded.
Note that the book is entirely in Portuguese and contains no
English, but virtually all of the CD titles listed inside are in
English and the comments on each are kept concise and brief.
There is also a small biographical paragraph or two on each
artist before the CD listings begin.
