An entertaining look at popular music -- jazz, Broadway, country, and rock -- showing how these musical styles reveal the subterranean shifts in American cultural values and attitudes. Crisp, clear, accurate information on popular music from the last 400 years. Anderson's forty years' experience as a college professor, nightclub pianist, and ten years of research add up to a very strong book. He offers, chapter after chapter, an insider's view of the real meaning of the raw historical evidence. It is a potent mixture, indeed!
