Listen to the Blues! Exploring a Musical Genre

Author(s): Perone, James;
Contributors: Perone, James;
Abstract:

Listen to the Blues! Exploring A Musical Genre provides an overview of this distinctly American musical genre for fans of the blues and curious readers alike, with a focus on 50 must-hear artists, albums, and subgenres


• Provides a well-rounded view of the blues genre in the 50 "must-hear" examples, some of which might not be expected

• Goes well beyond the typical biographically based books on the blues in the chapters on the impact of the blues on popular culture and the legacy of the genre

• Places the genre in the context of the wider narrative of African American life, and as an extension of African rhetorical traditions
