Book News Paper edition of the 1990 Greenwood Press work which was initiated as a special issue of Black Music Research Journal but grew too big for that format. Ten essays address a variety of subjects connected with African-American music of the 1920s, e.g. vocal concert music, musical theater, Duke Ellington, and the relationship of the music to literature and art. Includes an extensive bibliography of works composed during the period. Annotation copyright Book News, Inc. Portland, Or.
