Description

By providing a focused examination of the historical development of Black music artistry, William C. Banfield formulates a usable philosophy tied to how such music is made, shaped, and functions. He explores Black music culture from three angles: history, education, and the creative work of the musicians-engaging the reader in a conversation about the aesthetics and meanings that inform the cultural codes of Black music.
