The Jazz Glossary is a multimedia index of vocabulary specific to the interdisciplinary field of jazz. It includes more than 250 terms ranging from the sounds and techniques of jazz music to relevant cultural and historical phenomena. (Terms that apply more generally to all musics are not included.) The Glossary can be used simply as a reference for individuals who want to learn more about jazz, as well as more formally as part of jazz studies curriculum for students of nearly any age.
