Alphabetical Index

of Piero Scaruffi's History of Jazz Music 1900-2000

A complete alphabetical index would have been too long and costly to produce. This index is a compromise between providing help to locate a musician and saving space/money.
  • Each musician is located via the number of the chapter. See below the numbered list of chapters.
  • For each musician only one entry is given: the place where the main recordings are discussed. This index does not list all the pages in which a musician is mentioned, only the place where a musician's work is analyzed.
  • The names listed in this index are the musicians that are underlined in the text.
If you want to find out all the places where a certain musician is mentioned, you can go to www.scaruffi.com and use the search engine.
