The Annual Review of Jazz Studies provides a forum for the ever-expanding range and depth of jazz scholarship, from technical analyses to oral history to cultural interpretation. Addressed to specialists and fans alike, all volumes include feature articles, book reviews, numerous unpublished photographs, and bibliographic surveys.

This issue contains Anders Svanoe's extensive study of the little-known but highly original saxophonist Sonny Red-a definitive tribute combining oral history, a discography, photographs, and charts of every one of his recorded compositions. Charles Hartman analyzes the form of a Steve Swallow composition, with a fascinating excursus into the realm of lyric poetry. Matthew Santa offers a compelling new perspective of John Coltrane's compositional approach. In her examination of Miles Davis's classic "Walkin'," Alona Sagee tracks the evolution of an artist through successive recordings of the same piece. Also included is another installment of a bibliography compiling scholarly articles about jazz in journals not specifically devoted to jazz.
