Black Nationalism and the Revolution in Music. Frank African - American Studies - Kofsky.

Black Nationalism and the Revolution in Music

New York: Pathfinder Press, 1970. First edition. Paperback. Trade paperbound original book. Stated first printing. 280 pp. Review copy with publisher's review slip laid in. Illustrated with black and white photos. Cover photo of John Coltrane by Robert Parent. A good to very good copy of this scarce work which describes the revolution in jazz, its dynamics and the innovations of individual revolutionists. Kofsky's point of departure is that the music's ecolution cannot be fully understood on the aesthetic plane alone, but must also be regarded as an aspect of the social history of black people in the U.S. Includes interviews with John Coltrane and McCoy Tyner. Scarce and important work. Very Good. Item #29839
