Here for your delectation is the SPECTACULAR & RARE-------IN THE MOMENT:  JAZZ IN THE 1980'S by Francis Davis.   IN THE MOMENT traces the rise of such 1980's stars as Wynton and Branford Marsalis, Anthony Davis, David Murray, Bobby McFerrin, Stanley Jordan, and Billy Bang, while assessing the continuing influence of such father figures as Ornette Coleman, Sonny Rollins, Miles Davis, George Russell, John Lewis, and Roscoe Mitchell. In the process Francis Davis discusses the low visibility of jazz in the media, the uneasy relationship of jazz to pop, and the surprising emergence of the composer as the pivotal figure in what has always been regarded as the improviser's realm. IN THE MOMENT is a superb companion to some of the best music and musicians of an eventful decade.  You are bidding on the stated Oxford First Edition from 1986.  Other than a clipped back cardholder flyleaf (ex libris), both the DJ and the book are in positively minty-mint condition.
