Description
"At the turn of the 20th century, W.C. Handy (18731958) propelled the blues from regional obscurity, changing it into a vital tradition that fostered much of American popular music that followed. A native Alabaman, Handy moved to Memphis in 1905 after living in St. Louis and becoming a professional musician.... He became a prolific composer of songs, including 'St. Louis Blues' and 'Beale Street Blues,' and established Memphis as the blues' capital and Beale Street as its main street.... Rich and atmospheric, [David] Robertson's portrayal of Handy is also comprehensive and well referenced. It ought to be required reading for devotees of American music ... a rich basic history of the man and his music and the roots of much of the music we hear today."Booklist
