Book News
In biographies ranging from one to five pages, this encyclopedia chronicles living performers (with the sad, unintentional exception of Robert Shaw) from many genres who have been influential with either originality, popularity, or brilliance in their particular fields. The lives of 404 performers, composers, conductors, and bandleaders are profiled, and each subject's contribution to his or her area of music is defined. Most entries include expert commentary and have a suggested reading and discography. The index cross references the musicians, citing their mention in other subject's entries. Annotation c.
