This is an incredibly extensive resource for the history of Jazz and Blues, highlighting their relationship to each other throughout each decade. For each, the most important musicians of the time are given individual biographies, identifying the circles they played in, as well as the most famous songs at the time. Anyone interested in these genres should have a read, there's a lot to pick up.
