Music IS Rapid Transportation ...from The Beatles to Xenakis Vern Weber Scott Thomson Alan Stanbridge Bill Smith Donal McGraith Dan Lander Lawrence Joseph Daniel Kernohan A truly alternative look at music lists, not one that merely includes the obvious but shows the connections of popular music to the avant garde, the obscure, the experimental, the quirky, and the adventurous Herein you will find a list of 500 artists from the familiar to the unknown A list and a guide to musical pleasure sometimes close at hand and sometimes far afield.A truly alternative look at music lists, not one that merely includes the obvious but shows the connections of popular music to the avant garde, the obscure, the experimental, the quirky, and the adventurous Herein you will find a list of 500 artists from the familiar to the unknown A list and a guide to musical pleasure sometimes close at hand and sometimes far afield The book includes biographical essays of the eight contributors describing their musical journeys of discovery and the joy they derived from that exploration They discuss the merits and dilemmas of collecting, recording versus live performance, the change of media and the future of music In addition 100 plus artists receive short but detailed personal evaluation The book s genius and what makes it, to my knowledge, unique and much needed is that it doesn t put down one type of music at the expense of the other Pop or jazz police and resulting hierarchies are not welcome here The writers, of different age groups and backgrounds, describe the most influential music in their lives, from Dylan to Steve Reich, the Velvet Underground to Archie Shepp the eclecticism is remarkable, leading to a terrific reading experience The writing is both charmingly personal and widely informed, lending friendly hands to explore their musical journeys and epiphanies The book demystifies music that s too commonly thought of as inaccessible or the purview of an elite few a narrow self serving myth sometimes pushed by those elites to separate themselves from what H.L Mencken satirically called the booboisie Juan Rodriguez, Montreal Gazette These essays are often very personal and the contributors provide contexts mostly cultural and occassionally personal and political for their developments and discoveries There s very little journalistic detachment here and that s a good thing Each writer in his own way conveys the elation, that zing, of discovering and relishing new sounds Any eclectic music geek will identify with these stories When music heads bemoan the amount of crappy music out there that clogs our plane of existence, they fail to remember just how much good stuff is out there waiting to be discovered Music IS Rapid Transportation is thna just a reminder it may prove to be indispensable to tommorrow s musical Magellans starting out on their own Paths of Discovery Mark Keresman, Signal to Noise
