Duke University Press, 2013. New Copy ... $19.99 27.95
A deep look at the firmly-rooted, if often obscured presence of African American music in some of the most legendary country music ever made, onward up to contemporary, post-millenium country's flirtation with hip hop. Edited by Diane Pecknold and featuring work by herself, and Michael Awkward, Erika Brady, Barbara Ching, Adam Gussow, Patrick Huber, Charles Hughes, Jeffrey A. Keith, Kip Lornell, David Sanjek, Tony Thomas, Jerry Wever. It goes way back to the beginning – with the story of Tee Tot Payne, the street musician who taught young Hank Williams Sr., black fiddler and guitarist Arnold Shultz's influence on bluegrass pioneer Bill Monroe, and other interesting country origins stories – plus contemporary country's homogenization of hip hop influences. Paperback, 392 pages. Book

Charlie Rouse, Benny Bailey, & OthersUpper Manhattan Jazz Society ... LP
Enja (Germany), 1981. Near Mint- ... $11.99
A great amalgamation of players – and a quintet with powers far beyond their hokey name! The group's working in a polished approach to post-bop – a bit like styles heard on some of the Timeless and Steeplechase sessions of the late 70s, but with a more directive approach that really pushes the strong tunes on the set. The quintet features Charlie Rouse on tenor, Benny Bailey on trumpet, Albert Dailey on piano, Buster Williams on bass, and Keith Copeland on drums – all working their way through longish tunes by composers that include John Hicks and Fritz Pauer, as well as Rouse and Dailey. The album features a beautiful take on Hicks' great tune "Naima's Love Song", plus the tracks "After The Morning", "Spelunke", "Lil Sherry", and "Mr McGhee". LP, Vinyl record album

New Nyahbingi Drum ChoirVelvet Drum Meditations ... CD
Arawak, 2010. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A very hip percussive project from Douglas Ewart and the Nyahbingi Drum Choir – a group that mixes spiritual jazz with rootsy styles of rhythms – but all at a level that's very organic and spontaneous overall! The set was recorded live at the Velvet Lounge, but it's got a sound that's much more 70s loft than that venue normally sees – a tremendous combination of the percussion of Ewart with work by Clifton Robinson, Paul Cotton, Keith Eric, and others on percussion – plus Ed Wilkerson on tenor sax, and both Ann E Ward and Aquila Sadalla on voice. Tracks are all quite long, and very powerful – and although there's some reggae references in the titles, the overall vibe is much more Afrocentrist. Titles include "No Night In Zion", "Velvet Song For The Prarie Prophet", "They Got To Move", "Jamaican Anthem", and "Fire Spirits For Oswald Count Ossie Williams". CD
