KIRKUS REVIEW

A charivari of musicology which collects paragraphs of odd information in the history of music from 1784 to ""re-bop"". It makes a pleasant jumble of biographical addenda, anecdotal apocrypha, personalities, limericks, boners, criticism, compositions, advertising, radio commercials, instruments, inventions, censorship, song, animals, opera, concert, etc. Bound to amuse and sometimes edify musicians of all kinds.
