Third Ear - The Essential Listening Companion. On the heels of swing, bebop lifted jazz from the dance floor into an art form powered by virtuoso players.

The guide also explores key artists such as Sarah Vaughan, Charlie Christian and the young Miles Davis, plus such later figures as Joe Pass and Barry Harris.
