Damon J. Phillips

Book Description | Table of Contents
Introduction [in PDF format]

ADDITIONAL ENDORSEMENTS:

"Reading the history of jazz recording through perspectives from organizational science and economic theory, Damon Phillips investigates the complex interweaving of market forces, choice, genre, geography, and cultural production. This book combines rigorous and innovative methodologies with an engaging style that welcomes anyone who wants to know more about where great music comes from."--George E. Lewis, Columbia University

"Shaping Jazz provides a rigorous and engaging look at the instrumental roles played by organizations, musicians, and regions in the evolution of jazz. It weaves historical sources with expertly executed analysis, and does an excellent job of addressing potential alternatives for the observed patterns of music popularity."--Olav Sorenson, Yale University

"Shaping Jazz is a tour de force and invites the reader to explore how jazz might have diffused and cohered as music. This ambitious and historically informed consideration of the development of jazz offers answers to questions that readers of all types will find satisfying. A fine book indeed."--Timothy J. Dowd, Emory University
