Overview


Cultural Writing. Music. Henry Crowder, consort of Nancy Cunard, was Eddie South's pianist from 1927-1928. This 128 page monograph with previously undocumented materials includes an essay, roll/discography, some 90 photos, documents, music, CD insert with rolls and recordings including the Crowder-Cunard composition Memory Blues aka Bouf sur le toit and new recordings by New York vocalist Allan Harris of six compositions by Crowder including his collaboration with Samuel Beckett. "Because [Barnett's] research is so scrupulous and diligent, his delight in fact over conjecture soenlivening, I would like to see this book in universities--not just on the library shelves--because it is an essential text for anyone interested in the culture of the last century and its implications"--Michael Steinman, Cadence Magazine.
