Latin Tinge - 2nd edition

Latin Tinge (ISBN10: 0195121015; ISBN13: 9780195121018)
ISBN13: 978-0195121018
ISBN10: 0195121015

This edition has also been released as:

ISBN10: 0195121007

Summary: The Tejano superstar Selena and the tango revival both in the dance clubs and on Broadway are only the most obvious symptoms of how central Latin music is to American musical life. Latino rap has brought a musical revolution, while Latin and Brazilian jazz are ever more significant on the jazz scene. With the first edition of The Latin Tinge, John Storm Roberts offered revolutionary insight into the enormous importance of Latin influences in U.S. popular music
of all kinds. Now, in this revised second edition, Roberts updates the history of Latin American influences on the American music scene over the last twenty years.

From the merengue wave to the great traditions of salsa and nortena music to the fusion styles of Cubop and Latin rock, Roberts provides a comprehensive review. With an update on the jazz scene and the careers of legendary musicians as well as newer bands on the circuit, the second edition of The Latin Tinge sheds new light on a rich and complex subject: the crucial contribution that Latin rhythms are making to our uniquely American idiom.

Praise for the previous edition:.

"Roberts cares passionately about Latin music and he is able to describe what he hears in it clearly enough to enable the non-Latin listener to hear it too." --Robert Palmer, New York Times Book Review. "Roberts treats his subject with singular affection and respect only a true fan and student can give." --Nuestro Magazine. "Demonstratess a non-purist, open ear that is rare and welcome...a solid, up-to-date and balanced examination." --Kirkus Reviews. "A provocative study, secure in its data...Roberts virtually has this subject cornered." --Black Perspectives in Music.
