Announcing: My African American Music Reader

December 20, 2013

Linus Books has finished my newest book:

Readings in African American Music History: Essays.

Readings In African American Music History: Essays

Readings In African American Music History: Essays

Here is the Link to Linus Books for those of you who want to order it.

The text offers a chronological compilation of essays that cover sereral aspects of African American music for the lay person and for students from a historical perspective with few score insertions or theoretical musical analysis.

At the end of the text, I have contributed interviews and a brief coverage of why it is necessary to document the lives of African American Musicians, composers, historians, etc in the twenty first century.

The text does not have an Index or an Appendix section. It does provide space for student notes about each entry. My next book will be from a blended socio-cultural history perspective and will include notes, an appendix, photos, and many more of my personal  interviews with performers.

Thank you to readers and educators who continue to support my research and social commentary efforts  here at Sonic Tapestry.  Your inquiries about various sources and writers whose works I present inspire me to continue to search for and corroborate sources that you can use in your personal research and in your classrooms.


We are in the planning stage of a second text with totally different focus.

Thank you to Mr. Nash Triviani and all the staff at Linus publications who worked on the reader.  I will keep reviewing reader’s comments, researching, interviewing, writing and editing for next manuscript.
