Overview

The Blue Devils of Nada: A Contemporary American Approach to Aesthetic Statement by Albert Murray

Murray gives readers the redefined essence of his lifetime meditation on the blues as this musical style informs American life. Here are incisive essays on writing, music, and art that go beyond the social-science fiction of Negrohood to describe in no uncertain terms what it means to be American.
