Synopsis:

A landmark study, based on thousands of music-related references mined by the authors from a variety of contemporaneous sources, especially African American community newspapers, Out of Sight examines musical personalities, issues, and events in context. It confronts the inescapable marketplace concessions musicians made to the period’s prevailing racist sentiment. It describes the worldwide travels of jubilee singing companies, the plight of the great black prima donnas, and the evolution of “authentic” African American minstrels. Generously reproducing newspapers and photographs, Out of Sight puts a face on musical activity in the tightly knit black communities of the day.

Drawing on hard-to-access archival sources and song collections, the book is of crucial importance for understanding the roots of ragtime, blues, jazz, and gospel. Essential for comprehending the evolution and dissemination of African American popular music from 1900 to the present, Out of Sight paints a rich picture of musical variety, personalities, issues, and changes during the period that shaped American popular music and culture for the next hundred years.

From the Inside Flap: New in paperback, the acclaimed encyclopedic survey of black musical creation that marked the countdown to the explosion of ragtime

Book Description University Press of Mississippi. Paperback. Book Condition: new. BRAND NEW, Out of Sight: The Rise of African American Popular Music, 1889-1895, Lynn Abbott, Doug Seroff, This title presents a landmark exploration of one of the defining periods in American culture and African American popular music. The late 19th century was a time of extreme racial tension in the United States, yet it witnessed the emergence of ragtime and birth of an African American popular entertainment industry. Drawing on meticulous research from hard-to-access archival sources, and superbly illustrated with more than 150 photographs, "Out of Sight" is an eminently readable landmark exploration of the events and developments, the contradictions and redemptive energies that characterized the rise of black popular music in the midst of an American racial cataclysm. Featuring articles and biographies on the major musicians, performers, entertainers, and groups of the period, this is an essential resource for anyone interested in understanding the roots of ragtime, blues, jazz, gospel, and the issues that shaped American popular culture for the next hundred years.
