9780028646145: American Music: A Panorama, Concise Edition

This is an inviting and succinct guide to our nation's musical culture. Kingman's view of American music as a number of distinct parallel streams is reflected in this text and includes the following: folk and ethnic music; popular sacred music; the southern music of country, blues, and rock; popular secular music; jazz; and classical music. Contrasting these across regions and times, he delivers a clear vision of the historical roles of music and composers in American culture.
