Riding on a Blue Note Jazz and American Pop

Riding on a Blue Note: Jazz and American Pop By Gary Giddins
1981 | 330 Pages | ISBN: 019502835X , 0195032136 | scanned PDF | 15 MB


Gary Giddins, winner of the 1998 National Book Critics Circle Award, has a following that includes not only jazz enthusiasts but also pop music fans of every stripe. Writing here in a lyrical and celebratory style all his own, Giddins dazzlingly shows us -- among many other things -- how performers originally perceived as radical (Bing Crosby, Count Basie, Elvis Presley) became conservative institutions...how Charlie Parker created a masterpiece from the strain of an inane ditty...how the Dominoes helped combine church ritual with pop music...and how Irving Berlin translated a chiaroscuro of Lower East Side minorities into imperishable songs.
