Book Overview

This Description may be from another edition of this product.

A half-century of previously unpublished interviews with legendary musicians, in a brand-new book from America's foremost oral historian
I'm one of these people that thinks that everybody has certain gifts, you know, when they're born.I used to play the guitar when I was ten, you know. So I figured maybe my thing is playing the guitar, maybe that's my little gift.--Bob Dylan, interviewed in 1963, from And They All Sang
Throughout the second half of the twentieth century, Pulitzer Prize-winning oral historian Studs Terkel hosted a legendary daily radio program on WFMT in Chicago, presenting listeners with his inimitable take on a wide range of music from classical opera to jazz, blues, gospel, folk, and rock. His latest work of oral history shows us this completely different side of Studs Terkel--that of a brilliant and far-ranging musicologist.
And They All Sang features over forty conversations with some of the greatest musical luminaries of the past century: rock icons Bob Dylan and Janis Joplin, influential folk singer Pete Seeger, jazz geniuses Louis Armstrong and Dizzy Gillespie, composers Aaron Copland and Leonard Bernstein, classical musicians Andres Segovia and Ravi Shankar, legendary opera divas Rosa Raisa and Edith Mason, and gospel giants Thomas A. Dorsey and Mahalia Jackson. Read More chevron_right
