Editorial Reviews


"Robust, communitarian, and, above all, personal, Mandel sits down to chat with a catholic range of musicians, from Cassandra Wilson, Don Pullen and John McLaughlin, to Wynton Marsalis, Oliver Lake and John Zorn, bringing his subjects alive as flesh-and-blood folks, beyond merely musical points of view.--Seattle Times/Post Intelligencer

"Mandel...lets his subjects make their case with regard to race, class, or whatever, he chooses them for their impact on the contemporary scene and their potential to influence developments in the next century.... They reaffirm that the best artists neither forget their heritage, nor let it limit their vision."Ron Wynn,Nashville Scene

"In his probing, discursive, sometimes nostalgic, sometimes frustrating rumination on the state of the art today, Madel offers insights not just into the musicians and their music, but the businesss of the music"--Chicago Tribune

"Taken as a whole, Mandel's book is invaluable in tracing modern currents of the music while also forecasting its future direction."--Jazz Times
