Only an idiot would allow theirself to be guided to pay-for or trade-for 30-second cuts that are FREE elsewhere! I guess that's where they got the name "Idiot's Guide to Jazz" -Wake up and smell the coffee folks, then go ahead and listen to these cuts on Amazon or wherever. [[Wow, 4 copies here - quick better delete it from your CD Tower before somebody finds out you had a brain fart like the guy on the cover!]]

IMPORTANT: These are only EXCERPTS from these songs!
Time Will Tell... | The Great State of Washington DC! | 02/11/2007
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This CD is a great idea for introducing Jazz styles especially for study in an academic setting, but it can be a little frustrating to really like one of the songs, only to have it fade away moments later when the excerpt time is up (30 seconds to 1 minute). A lot of these songs are not that long to begin with, it might have been better to include the whole song and fewer of them."
As an introduction to Jazz, this is great

(4 out of 5 stars)

"This CD has 66 different tracks with between 30 seconds and 1 minute of each song. Each track gives you enough of an introduction to each song so that you would recognize it if you heard it again.The selection of songs is very representative of the variety of musical styles under the umbrella of "jazz."I'd highly recommend this for a music appreciation class or for someone who wants to experience jazz to see if you like it and which artists you might be intrested in hearing more of."
