"A most valuable and engrossing book that will surely be read by all those who write about jazz. Fans will also seek it out. It offers a wealth of perspectives, allowing the reader to learn what people in other disciplines have to say about jazz."—Lewis Porter, author, with Michael Ullman, of Jazz: From Its Origins to the Present — N/A
"A remarkable variety of voices and perspectives, and yet the overall thrust of the collection—to establish the groundwork on which a field of jazz studies could be founded—is quite clear. Jazz Among the Discourses will have an obvious impact on musicology, simply because nothing like it has ever been attempted."—Scott DeVeaux, University of Virginia — N/A
