E-Book review:

From

There is no stronger argument for America as a melting pot than its popular music. Nation music critic Santoro launches this collection of insightful, informative essays from the premise that post-World War II American pop music flows from the jazz of Louis Armstrong and the folk music of Woody Guthrie. He then demonstrates how subsequent artists commingled those two strains and added other elements to keep musical genres vital. Jazz keyboardist Herbie Hancock embraced techno and hip-hop; country crooner Willie Nelson made his singing jazzy; Bob Dylan lurched from folk to rock and back again; and jazz singer Cassandra Wilson utterly transformed lightweight pop tunes. Even trailblazing comic Lenny Bruce incorporated a jazz sensibility into his stand-up routines. The nonmusical issues that inevitably bubble up in Santoro's discussions of music--marginalism, politics, and, most frequently, race--reflect concerns of the country in general. One issue that doesn't trouble Santoro is that long-standing bugaboo of cultural arbiters, authenticity; as he compellingly demonstrates, overwrought concerns about an artist's genuineness impede cultural vitality.

Review


"An informed, thought-provoking book that will appeal to general readers and fans."--Library Journal


"At its best, the writing here is lively and insightful, describing the aerobatics of a Louis Armstrong solo or a death's-head rasp of Miles Davis's voice.... Santoro's pleasure in the music always shines through."--New York Times Book Review


"Santoro is at his best when he's leading with his heart."--JazzTimes


"Insightful, informative.... The nonmusical issues that inevitably bubble up in Santoro's discussions of music--marginalism, politics, and, most frequently, race--reflect concerns of the country in general. One issue that doesn't trouble Santoro is that longstanding bugaboo of cultural arbiters, authenticity; as he compellingly demonstrates, overwrought concerns about an artist's genuineness impede cultural vitality."--Booklist


"When he focuses on postwar jazz or on artists like Dylan and Bruce Springsteen, with whom he passionately identifies, Santoro is an engaged and insightful writer, and his wide-ranging tastes illuminate odd and interesting facets of his subjects."--Elijah Wald, The Washington Post Book World
