Rhythm is Our Business is Eddy Determeyer's painstakingly researched chronicle of the rise, peak and collapse of Lunceford's orchestra. Determeyer gathered his material from nearly five dozen interviews, and more than four dozen journals, newspapers and books. In addition to the endnotes and bibliography, Determeyer includes an extensive discography of the Harlem Express's recordings.
Determeyer traces Lunceford's early years in Oklahoma City and Denver and his college years at Fisk University.Read more ›
Eddy Determeyer has done a fine job in exploring Lunceford's life and times. He puts the "Harlem Express" into context, offering many insights into the man, music and surrounding circumstances. Drawing upon previously unpublished interviews (many of which were conducted by the author) as well as 'common' sources and his own analysis, Determeyer produced a very readable book that fleshes out this amazing man and his music. Highly recommended.
