In this brilliant assemblage of his writings on music, the first such collection in nearly twenty years, Baraka blends autobiography, history, musical analysis, and political commentary to recall the sounds, people, times, and places he's encountered. As in his earlier classics, Blues People and Black Music, Baraka offers essays on the famous--Max Roach, Charlie Parker, Miles Davis, John Coltrane--and on those whose names are known mainly by jazz aficionados--Alan Shorter, Jon Jang, and Malachi Thompson. Baraka's literary style, with its deep roots in poetry, makes palpable his love and respect for his jazz musician friends. His energy and enthusiasm show us again how much Coltrane, Albert Ayler, and the others he lovingly considers mattered. He brings home to us how music itself matters, and how musicians carry and extend that knowledge from generation to generation, providing us, their listeners, with a sense of meaning and belonging+-+9062075705132824ocn000047882book19690.39Baraka, AmiriFour Black revolutionary plays, all praises to the Black manDrama"These four one-act plays deal with the African-American experience of today. Their central elements are love and hatred echoed in violently explosive words, actions, thoughts and metaphor. The sum total of three hundred years of contained fury, they are powerful statements about the real meaning of white oppression of black people. In their militancy and anger, they perfectly express the mood and frustrations of black America and are as relevant today as when they were first publicly performed. This edition contains a foreword by playright, novelist, journalist and lecturer Lindsay Barrett, who has also made widely acclaimed radio and TV programs on jazz, the arts and African cultural matters."--Publisher description+-+5055809625125215ocn000167084book19670.47Baraka, AmiriTalesFiction112133ocn000285337book19650.53Baraka, AmiriThe system of Dante's HellFiction105523ocn000711112book19640.50Baraka, AmiriThe dead lecturer; poemsPoetry98013ocn038031958book19950.28Baraka, AmiriTransbluesency : the selected poems of Amiri Baraka/LeRoi Jones (1961-1995)Starting with a Preface to a Twenty Volume Suicide Note, and including many out-of-print and limited edition chapbooks and broadsides, Transblusency: The Selected Poems of Amiri Baraka concisely illuminates Baraka's almost single-handed renovation of both the nature and form of post-WWII African American literature, and his profound influence on a generation of poets of all ethnic backgrounds+-+286513310691312ocn008954101book19830.35Baraka, AmiriConfirmation, an anthology of AfricanAmerican women90929ocn000020888book19630.53Baraka, AmiriThe baptism & the toilet86418ocn004195488book19630.59Baraka, AmiriThe moderns; an anthology of new writing in AmericaShort fiction by William Eastlake, Edward Dorn, Douglas Woolf, Paul Metcalf, John Rechy, Michael Rumaker, Robert Creeley, Fielding Dawson, Hubert Selby, Jr., Jack Kerouac, William Burroughs, LeRoi Jones, Diane di Prima, and Russell Edson78115ocn000049470book19690.50Baraka, AmiriBlack magic: Sabotage, Target study, Black art; collected poetry, 1961-1967Poetry77212ocn000210488book19710.53Baraka, AmiriRaise, race, rays, raze: essays since 196577019ocn000563326book19610.59Baraka, AmiriPreface to a twenty volume suicide note; [poems]Poetry75612ocn033807571visu19950.50W.E.B.

Jazz, in particular, was a decisive influence on their thinking, and, as The Shadow and the Act reveals, they drew on their insights into the creative process of improvisation to analyze race and politics in the civil rights era. In this inspired study, Walton M. Muyumba situates them as a jazz trio, demonstrating how Ellison, Baraka, and Baldwin's individual works form a series of calls and responses with each other.
