White Noise: The Eminem Collection, Als, Hilton
4 Als, Hilton White Noise: The Eminem Collection
Da Capo Press 2003 156025534X / 9781560255345 Paperback Very Good 
Grammy-winning Eminem (Marshall Mathers) is the first white crossover star of the hip-hop generation and it is a crossover notable for the absence of the resentment (but more of the controversy) that confronted past white per formers of "black" music. In fact, black cultural bigwigs from Zadie Smith (who profiled Eminem in a Vibe cover-story lovefest) to rap progenitor and mogul Russell Simmons, not to mention superproducer to the stars Dr. Dre, a host of lesser lights, and hordes of bona fide fans have been crawling out of the woodwork to deflect the very criticism you might expect a white boy to draw when taking up a black form as his own. Meanwhile, self-consciousl y highbrow journals like the New Republic and the Nation have taken Eminem to task over his confused class antagonism, as portrayed in both his music and his first (it won't be his last) $100 million?grossing feature film, 8 Mile, and his truly scary misogyny and homophobia. This illustrated collect ion with fifty photographs includes interviews with Eminem along with selec tions from Toure, Andrew Sarris, Kenneth Turan, Armond White, Richard Kim, Ann Powers, Vic Everett, and many others.

American Musicians: Fifty-six Portraits in Jazz, Balliett, Whitney
9 Balliett, Whitney American Musicians: Fifty-six Portraits in Jazz
Oxford University Press 1986 0195037588 / 9780195037586 Hardcover Very Good/Very Good 
A tight clean hardcover, no markings throughout, NOT an ex-lib edition: This is Whitney Balliett's long-awaited "big book." In it are all the jazz profiles he has written for The New Yorker during the past 24 years. These include his famous early portraits of Pee Wee Russell, Red Allen, Earl Hine s, and Mary Lou Williams, done when these giants were in full flower; his r ecent reconstructions of the lives of such legends as Art Tatum, Coleman Ha wkins, Jack Teagarden, Zoot Sims, and Dave Tough; His quick but indelible g limpses into the daily (or nocturnal) lives of Duke Ellington and Charles M ingus; and his vivid pictures of such on-the-scene masters as Red Norvo, Or nette Coleman, Buddy Rich, Elvin Jones, Art Farmer, Michael Moore, and Tomm y Flanagan. Also included are such lesser known but invaluable players as A rt Hodes, Jabbo Smith, Joe Wilder, Warne Marsh, Gene Bertoncini, Joe Bushki n, and Marie Marcus. All these profiles make the reader feel, as one observer has pointed out, that he is "sitting with Balliett and his subject and listening in." The book can be taken as a kind of history of jazz, as well as a biographical encylopedia of many of its most important performers. It can also be regarded as a model of American prose. Robert Dawidoff said of Whitney Balliett"s most recent book, Jelly Roll, Jabbo and Fats, that "few people write as well about anything as Balliett writes about jazz." And the late Philip Larkin wrote in 1982 of the "transcendence of Balliett's prose."

Daniel Barenboim: A Life in Music, Barenboim, Daniel
10 Barenboim, Daniel Daniel Barenboim: A Life in Music
Scribner 1992 0684193264 / 9780684193267 1st Edition Hardcover Near Fine/ Fine 
A crisp clean first edition/printing protected in a new brodart wrapper Pianist and conductor Barenboim, currently director of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, has had a remarkable career, with its share of drama and tragedy, including the shattering death of his brilliantly gifted first wife, cellist Jacqueline Du Pre, and the debacle of his ignominious departure from Paris's Bastille Opera. But since Barenboim stresses at the outset that he has no intention of referring to private or personal matters, readers looking for colorful details of his life will be disappointed. Instead, his book is a staid account of his career, with dutiful observations on colleagues and contemporaries (as a conductor he seems, oddly, to have been most influenced by the unlikely duo of Pierre Boulez and Sir John Barbirolli). He has interesting things to say on the relationship between music, language and national temperament, and on orchestral technique--though there is surprisingly little on the pianism with which he made his name.

Hole in Our Soul: The Loss of Beauty and Meaning in American Popular Music, Bayles, Martha
12 Bayles, Martha Hole in Our Soul: The Loss of Beauty and Meaning in American Popular Music
University Of Chicago Press 1996 0226039595 / 9780226039596 Paperback Near Fine 
A crisp clean softcover, no markings throughout: Bayles, former TV and arts columnist for the Wall Street Journal , takes th e title for her book from the old saying, "If you don't like the blues, you 've got a hole in your soul." The author of this wide-ranging study of Amer ican popular music maintains that the African American tradition--blues, ja zz, gospel--is this country's "distinctive musical idiom . . . truer to civ ilized values" than punk, heavy metal, rap and other antisocial impulses de scended from the late-19th century European avant-garde trends in art that led to futurism, surrealism, dada and ultimately to music whose aim is to s hock. It is a powerful thesis, but Bayles obfuscates her arguments by forci ng all types of music and art into such rigid categories as "introverted mo dernism" and "extroverted modernism." She calls the tendency to shock, for example, "perverse modernism" and claims that this antiart, together with r acial stereotypes, has kept African American music, which should be a human izing antidote to the brutal and the obscene, out of the mainstream. Copyright 1994 Reed Business Information, Inc. --This text refers to an ou t of print or unavailable edition of this title. From Library Journal Impressively researched and organized, this work explores historical, cultural, and sociological factors that figure in the evolution of American popular music. Bayles, an educator and arts critic, leaves few stones unturned in her effort to shed light on the current state of pop music. She begins by contrasting European and African American musical influences and defining musical modernism. She then factors

18 Brown, Delia Malcolm McLaren: Musical Paintings
JRP | Ringier 2010 3037640588 / 9783037640586 Paperback Very Good 
A copy that has been read, but is in excellent condition. Pages are intact and not marred by notes or highlighting. The spine remains undamaged. "Today," declares svengali-at-large Malcolm McLaren, "there are two words that sum up the culture: 'authenticity' is one, and the other... 'karaoke'! Many artists spend their entire life trying to authenticate, make true, a karaoke culture-but you have to be a magician to make that happen." This book, like the exhibition from which it stems, is built around McLaren's Shallow, a series of 21 "musical paintings" made from a "grab bag of pop culture's debris over the past 50 years." The project, curated by Bernd Wurlitzer, brought together music-related works by Delia Brown, Wolfgang Flad, Rodney Graham, Gregor Hildebrandt, Damien Hirst, Alicja Kwade, Jim Lambie, Jack Pierson, Rob Pruitt, Michael Queenland, Anselm Reyle, Michael Sailstorfer and Andreas Schulze. McLaren has proven to be a visionary of pop culture and a pop cultural icon for more than 30 years; with Shallow, he formally announces his identity as an artist.

Luc, the atelier's master, proves an indispensable guide to the history a nd art of the piano.

The Piano Shop on the Left Bank is at once a beguiling portrait of a Paris not found on any map and a tender account of the awaken ing of a lost childhood passion.
