The major detraction from the dust wrapper is the noticeable yellowing of the white of the background. " The story of Jazz is both complex and enthralling. Mark White handles the subject with a clarity that never masks his infectious enthusiasm. In the ' History ' he traces the development of Jazz from its beginnings in New Orleans around 1900 to its current state in both America and Europe ( 1970s )." -- from the front fold over blurb.
