Black Musicby Amiri Baraka, LeRoi Jones
In brilliant discussions of black musicians from Billie Holiday and Thelonious Monk to Charlie Parker, Archie Shepp, Don Cherry, and Sun-Ra, LeRoi Jones examines each musician's personality, background, musical ambitions, accomplishments, and disappointments to illuminate both the context and spirit of jazz.
