About the Author

Thomas Owens is Professor of Music at El Camino College in Torrance, California.


"The most in-depth and scholarly assessment of the context, music, and its practitioners to date."--Eddie Meadows, author of Jazz Research and Performance Materials "A detailed, well-researched book for those serious about jazz and its components. It will double as interesting reading for individuals, and be vitally useful in the classroom. Bravo!"--John Clayton "An excellent way to get a more-than-superficial knowledge of certain aspects of bebop."--Jazz Now "A very informative and enlightening book."--Horace Silver "Both for the specialist and the general reader, Thomas Owens's Bebop: The Music and Its Players is an informative and highly readable treatment of this major development in jazz history."--Notes "Accessible and inviting."--Booklist "This is about as microscopic a look a bebop as you can get from a book....An excellent way to get a more-than-superficial knowledge of certain aspects of bebop."--Jazz Now "A very informative and enlightening book on the bebop era."--Horace Silver "Owens has an impressive grasp of the essence and importance of bop. He dazzles the reader with his transcribed and annotated musical examples. This book makes you want to listen."--Douglas A. Ramsey, author of Jazz Matters: Reflections on the Music and Some of its Makers "Owens does something valuable and new by offering musical transcriptions--in the manner of a string quartet score--of what an entire group is doing during an entire recording. This places the soloist in an ensemble context, without which it is impossible to fully understand what the soloist is doing."--Lingua Franca
