But recent signs-ranging from Ken Burnss documentary Jazz: A History of Americas Music to the dominance, in terms of sales, of reissues over new recordings-have made many question whether jazzs past has now become more important than its future, or whether jazz has any future at all.

In this book, composed entirely via e-mail, 10 leading jazz critics take on the various issues surrounding jazzs future-the dominance of mainstream jazz, its spread around the world, the difficulty of making a living playing it, the growth of repertory jazz, the dearth of interest among young African Americans, the paradoxically backward-looking nature of the avant-garde, and many others.

Their conclusions are as surprising, witty, and edgy as the music itself.
