Show description for Sunday 1/30/2011 @ 3:00 PM - 6:00 PM

This afternoon on New Day Jazz, Greil Marcus returns to discuss his most recent book, BOB DYLAN BY GREIL MARCUS. As part of today's program, we will focus on the music of Bob Dylan, with special emphasis on his place within the Blues tradition. One of the most beguiling and mercurial artists in the history of the United States, Dylan's music and poetry is among the most influential in the history of popular song. A life-long chronicler of Dylan's life and work, Mr. Marcus is the pre-eminent voice in Dylan scholarship, and interpretation.

Thank you to Professor Thomas Bruce, for access to his own private collection of Dylan resources, in assembling today's broadcast.

A Power Stronger Than Itself!

In an exciting, often astounding, work of original and powerfully deciphering scholarship, George E. Lewis has written one of the most important books on the subject of jazz in particular and American music in general. Rising to the challenges set forth in such masterworks as Harold Cruse's The Crisis of the Negro Intellectual and Eileen Southern's The Music of Black Americans, Mr. Lewis tells the story of the Association for the Advancement of Creative Musicians, an institution that has come to represent the cultural vanguard of international music for over forty years. Employing a mixture of oral histories from the musicians themselves, "front line" reportage and rare archival documents, many disclosed for the first time, Mr. Lewis weaves together a compelling, engrossing and frequently provocative narration of one of the most fascinating periods of history in the United States. In the tradition of "damn sure, telling it like it is", Mr. Lewis offers at times profound insight into the formative years of many our era's most significant composers, including such mercurial and often illusive personalities such as Muhal Richard Abrams, Roscoe Mitchell, Henry Threadgill and Anthony Braxton. With clarity and wit, hipness and humanity, Mr. Lewis also provides the much needed and invaluable context of the cultural revolutons taking place that surrounded and informed the often equally radical music of the 1960's and 70's. Bringing the story of the AACM up in to our 21st century, Mr. Lewis both strenghtens our roots and provides the fertile ground for the scholarship of tomorrow. A Power Stronger Than Itself: The Story of the AACM and American Experimental Music, is truly a book for the Ages.

Palin Is Guilty Of Conspiracy To Assassinate A Public Official

If I posted a screen capture from google maps, illustrating a political enemy's address, and placed a target on it, through a gun's cross-hairs, it would not matter who pulled the trigger, I would be considered a person of interest in the case. Sarah Palin is guilty of being an accessory to the assassination plot to kill Rep. Giffords, and should be investigated as such.
