About

Overview

This concise, accessible book describes American music as a panorama of distinct yet parallel streams--hip-hop and Latin; folk and country; gospel and classical; jazz, blues, and rock--that reflect the uniquely diverse character of the United States. Comparing and contrasting musical styles across regions and time, the author delivers a vision of American music both exuberant and inventive--a music that arises out of the history and musical traditions of the many immigrants to America's shores.

Features and Benefits

  • Coverage of the most recent musical traditions to join the American panorama--Mexican, Asian, and Arabic--speaks to the musical heritage and listening preferences of many of today's students.
  • Listening Cues point students toward noteworthy characteristics of an audio selection.
  • The organization focuses the reader's attention on the styles and genres most representative of the character of American music. Also, the text's topical organization allows instructors great flexibility in designing their courses without sacrificing the historical context of each musical style and genre.

  • Frequent cross-referencing of the recordings in the text shows the roots of one style in another and the influence one style has had on another. Approximately 100 photographs with extensive captions capture the music's historical context.
  • Key Terms at the end of each chapter highlight important concepts and aid in study and review.
  • Extensive references and additional listening suggestions encourage students to explore on their own.
