Freedom Sounds
An insightful examination of the impact of the Civil Rights Movement and African Independence on jazz in the 1950s and 60s, Freedom Sounds traces the complex relationships among music, politics, aesthetics, and activism through the lens of the hot button racial and economic issues of the time. Ingrid Monson illustrates how the contentious and soul-searching debates in the Civil Rights, African Independence, and Black Power movements shaped aesthetic debates and exerted a moral pressure on musicians to take action. Throughout, her arguments show how jazz musicians' quest for self-determination as artists and human beings also led to fascinating and far reaching musical explorations and a lasting ethos of social critique and transcendence. Across a broad body of issues of cultural and political relevance, Freedom Sounds considers the discursive, structural, and practical aspects of life in the jazz world in the 1950s and 1960s. In domestic politics, Monson explores the desegregation of the American Federation of Musicians, the politics of playing to segregated performance venues in the 1950s, the participation of jazz musicians in benefit concerts, and strategies of economic empowerment. Issues of transatlantic importance such as the effects of anti-colonialism and African nationalism on the politics and aesthetics of the music are also examined, from Paul Robeson's interest in Africa, to the State Department jazz tours, to the interaction of jazz musicians such Art Blakey and Randy Weston with African and African diasporic aesthetics. Monson deftly explores musicians' aesthetic agency in synthesizing influential forms of musical expression from a multiplicity of stylistic and cultural influences-African American music, popular song, classical music, African diasporic aesthetics, and other world musics-through examples from cool jazz, hard bop, modal jazz, and the avant-garde. By considering the differences between aesthetic and socio-economic mobility, she presents

In The Groove
The dozen men interviewed by Ted Fox for In The Groove may not be household names, but without them the music industry would not exist as it does today, and many of its greatest stars may have kept their day jobs. These are the men behind everyone from Bob Dylan to Bob Marley, John Coltrane to Billy Joel, Aretha Franklin to Janis Joplin. In The Groove is more than an anthology - it is a personal history of the music business from the men who invented it and made it. This classic book is essential reading for anyone interested in the music industry.

Like his earlier book - the classic Showtime at the Apollo - In The Groove gives the appearance of having been put together with the greatest of ease - and it undoubtedly was. But it is an ease born of a thorough familiarity with the subject and a deep devotion to its practitioners.
