A Living Jazz Legend, musician and composer David Baker has made a distinctive mark on the world of music in his nearly 60-year career—as player (chiefly on trombone and cello), composer, and educator. In this richly illustrated volume, Monika Herzig explores Baker’s artistic legacy, from his days as a jazz musician in Indianapolis to his long-term gig as Distinguished Professor and Chairman of the Jazz Studies department at Indiana University. Baker’s credits are striking: in the 1960s he was a member of George Russell’s "out there" sextet and orchestra; by the 1980s he was in the jazz educator’s hall of fame. His compositions have been recorded by performers as diverse as Dexter Gordon and Janos Starker, the Beaux Arts Trio, the Composer’s String Quartet and the Czech Philharmonic. Featuring enlightening interviews with Baker and a CD of unreleased recordings and Baker compositions, this book brings a jazz legend into clear view.

Johnson and guitarist Wes Montgomery, as well as songwriters like Noble Sissle and Leroy Carr.

Saxophonist, multi-wind player, arranger, composer, music director, theater works producer, educator, and visionary, Pat Patrick performed with Duke Ellington’s and Quincy Jones’ orchestras, Thelonious Monk, Mongo Santamaria, Nat King Cole, James Moody, Eric Dolphy, Marvin Gaye, Patti Labelle, and Billy Taylor. Most of his career, however, was spent laying down the baseline grooves on the baritone saxophone with the indefinable Sun Ra Archestra for over 35 years. Based on research in the recently opened archive of personal papers, artifacts, scrapbooks, music, news clippings and photographs, Pat Patrick: American Musician and Cultural Visionary, explores the life and influence of this important musical man-behind-the-scenes. Musicologist Bill Banfield weaves a treasure trove of primary source material—including interviews with Patrick's family, friends, and associates—into a tapestry of Patrick’s remarkable life as the musical right hand of some of America’s greatest Black musical artists.

Auf der Suche nach dem ultimativen Kick Sonne, Meer und Weite – für einen Surfer ist das nicht genug. Er braucht die große, die immer größere Welle. Bruce Pike ist in seinem Leben viele Wellen geritten, er weiß um die Faszination und die Tücken dieses Sports. Dabei fing alles so harmlos an, in seinem kleinen Kaff an der Westküste Australiens: Als Kind tauchte er mit seinem Freund Loonie um die Wette, es ging darum, so lange wie möglich den Atem anzuhalten. Bald entdeckten sie gemeinsam das Surfen – und forderten immer waghalsiger den Tod heraus ...

Following in the footsteps of renowned authors like Alain Locke, Harold Cruse, and Amiri Baraka, Black Notes: Essays of A Musician Writing in A Post-Album Age, takes as its mission an important aesthetic inquiry, asking the compelling questions: How did we get where we are? What's next among this generation's artistic voices, concerns, and practices? What is the future of Black Popular Music? In this fascinating collection of essays, interviews, and notes, Author William C. Banfield celebrates and critiques the values of contemporary Black popular music through the exploration of both present and past voices and movements. From his unique vantage point as musician, artist, and writer, Banfield examines a variety of influences in the music world, from 17th-century composer/violinist Chevalier de St. Georges to jazz giant Duke Ellington; from producer Quincy Jones to pop legend Prince. Using a wide-angle lens, Banfield effectively draws from the academic world of cultural studies as well as a plethora of popular culture examples, including contemporary Black American composers, films, and television shows.

Faith and Church both exist within a complex matrix of personalities and culture, spirituality and history. “A Southern Catholic Legacy” explores the intertwining of these patterns from the late nineteenth through the early twenty-first centuries. The establishment of Notre Dame Seminary in 1923 as an institution of higher learning for training Southern Catholic Clergy was an achievement made possible by the close collaboration of Archbishop John W. Shaw (1918-1934) with the clergy and laity of the South, thereby succeeding in an endeavor which had defeated all of his predecessors.

Wir alle kennen ihn - aber wer ist Michael Jackson? In ihrem eleganten Essay nähert sich Margo Jefferson der spannendsten und widersprüchlichsten Figur der Popkultur, einem Star, den Hits wie Billie Jean und Thriller unsterblich machten. Sie analysiert das Phänomen Jackson, wie er erst als schwarzer Kinderstar, dann als exzentrischer Freak und schließlich als Verdächtigter vor Gericht von sich reden machte - und zur zerbrechlichsten Ikone der Postmoderne wurde. Eine brillante, pointiert gefasste Studie, die Publishers Weekly mit Susan Sontags frühen Aufsätzen zur amerikanischen Popkultur verglich.
