Product description


"Each page makes me want to either dance or visit a rock star's grave." "Whatever genre of music you prefer, you'll likely find something outside that genre to push your boundaries." "The stories behind the music can be as inspiring as the music itself...will likely inspire the reader to seek out a lot of new music." "A diverse time capsule that grapples with pop music's most engaging issues." "For those with broad ears and hungry minds, Da Capo's annual remains a treat."


This is the seventh book in the eagerly-awaited series of annual collections celebrating the best of writing on all styles of music, from rock to hip-hop to jazz to pop to blues and more. "Da Capo Best Music Writing" has become one of the most eagerly-awaited annuals of them all. Celebrating the year in music writing by gathering a rich array of essays, missives and musings on every style of music from rock to hip-hop, R&B, jazz, pop, blues and more, it is essential reading for anyone who loves great music and accomplished writing. Scribes of every imaginable sort - novelists, poets, journalists, musicians - are gathered to create a multi-voiced snapshot of the year in music writing that, like the music it illuminates, is every bit as thrilling as it is riveting.
