Published by Anvil Philippines, 2011

This book is a tribute to the role of jazz today as truly global music, a universal language that transcends cultural boundaries. Resting firmly on American cultural traditions, jazz is now enriched by the sheer diversity of cultures around the world that have embraced this special form of music.

This book is also a tribute to the legacy artists such as Louis Armstrong, Dave Brubechk, and Duke in the bars and jazz clubs that speckle our cities. Jazz is truly a timeless bridge across cultures and is yet another link between the Philippines and the United States.
