KIRKUS REVIEW

As a clear and widely ranging survey of all kinds of American popular music from ballads to jazz, this should appeal to the growing market of people interested in the field. The contributions of folk ballads, the economics of Tin Pan Alley, the outgrowths of Swing and Be-Bop are treated with equal discernment. The personalities in the field- Louis Armstrong, Dizzie Gillespie, Bix Belderbeeke, composers and performers alike, are made integral to the story of popular music.
