Naomi Beckwith & Dieter RoelstraeteFreedom Principle – Experiments In Art & Music 1965 to Now ... Book
Museum Of Contemporary Art, 2015. New Copy ... $28.99 35.00
A beautiful book from the Museum Of Contemporary Art in Chicago – done in collaboration with a great exhibit on the AACM and AfriCobra arts movements of the 60s! The former is very well-known to Dusty Groove customers – the musical movement that gave focus to the ideas and energies of jazz musicians Roscoe Mitchell, Muhal Richard Abrams, Anthony Braxton, George Lewis, Nicole Mitchell, The Art Ensemble Of Chicago, Douglas Ewart, and so many important Chicago talents of the past 50s years. AfriCOBRA was a visual movement, and equally important – and often worked alongside the AACM with similar empowerment and consciousness-raising ideals – presented here in a stunning range of works that include paintings, murals, prints, sculptures, installations, and other striking forms – by artists who include KeRa Upra, Mitchell Caton, Wadsworth Jarrell, Yaounde Olu, Jose Williams, and others – brought together here in a range of beautiful images. The book features way more than the exhibit – including images of older artifacts, such as posters – and essays by curators Naomi Beckwith and Dieter Roelstraete – as well as George Lewis, Rebecca Zorach, and a collective conversation with Tomeka Reid, Hamza Walker, and Romi Crawford. Other great bits include a chronology of creative activity – and a topography of the movements, mapped over Chicago with photos of key locations. 263 pages, softcover, in full color. Book

✨✧ Michael ChabonTelegraph Avenue (hardcover) ... Book
Harper, 2012. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Michael Chabon takes a dip into our own little slice of the universe – by setting this book in a fictious record store in Oakland, California! Chabon's version of the record store isn't exactly like our own experience here at Dusty Groove – maybe more in the High Fidelity side of the spectrum – as the small indie Brokeland Records braces for impact from a larger megastore opening nearby. But the life of the store is only a small slice of the story – because, as usual with Chabon, the real strength of the book is its sense of character – from the owner of the store to the cast of characters in the Oakland scene. And while Chabon might be a bit stiff with some of his funk and soul references, our props still go out to him for giving that world the same sort of play he gave to comics in The Amazing Adventures Of Kavalier & Clay. 465 pages, hardcover edition.
