Editorial Reviews

Review

The book's best feature is that, thanks to many years of acquaintance, Pool is able to let Zenobia Powell Perry speak in her own voice, giving readers the impression that they truly are getting to know her. (The Triangle Of Mu Phi Epsilon, Winter 2010)

Pool's biography of Zenobia Powell Perry is an important addition to the literature about women composers, as well as race and music, and is highly recommended for both public and academic libraries. Pool's informative and thought-provoking biographyis based heavily on primary resources, including interviews conducted by Pool, Perry's personal papers, correspondence, and manuscript scores. (Mla's Notes, October 2009)

(Mla's Notes, October 2009)

Jeannie Gayle Pool’s new book is a fascinating biography of a little-known composer and pianist....Jeannie Gayle Pool’s book is a welcome addition to the dearth of scholarship concerning Zenobia Powell Perry....Pool’s absorbing re-telling of this uniquely American story should encourage many performers – and scholars – to explore and further disseminate the wealth of Zenobia Powell Perry’s compositions. (Association for Recorded Sound Collections Journal (ARSC Journal))
