Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
In a book for those open to new adventures in music, 101 musicians (jazz, bluegrass, gospel, blues, rock, folk--all but classical and "world") discuss music they listen to and that has influenced them. Based on interviews conducted by music journalists Reder and Baxter, entries contain a career overview, an annotated list of the subject's favorites (including songs, recordings, and live performances), and a discussion of his or her own recordings. A master list of suggested recordings contains recommendations for artists mentioned by a large number of the musicians interviewed. Occassional lapses into "hip" lingo are mitigated by otherwise sensitive writing and the variety of interesting, diverse music the musicians listen to (with many surprises). An appendix lists companies selling many of the recordings mentioned, so the book can work superbly as a selection tool for anyone. Recommended for public, academic, and music libraries.--William Kenz, Moorhead State Univ. Lib., MN Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.
