by Francis DavisJazz is more popular than it has been for quite a while, but — according to author Francis Davis — that popularity has come at a cost. Jazz has become identified with its past, especially bebop, the style that began as a daring departure from convention but has since become the required language for all musicians. Davis prefers artists who push at the avant-garde edges, who refuse to accept the status quo. This collection of his influential writings again focuses on these hard-to-categorize heroes, ranging from mainstream stars like Miles Davis to lesser-known heroes.
