Worlds of music : an introduction to the music of the world's peoples by Jeff Todd Titon( Book )

66 editions published between 1984 and 2018 in English and held by 2,828 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Worlds of Music is a unique introduction to ethnomusicology, the ideal text with which to experience and understand the meanings of music in the lives of diverse human communities. Writing about cultures they have studied at first hand, the authors describe and analyze the indigenous musics of Africa, North and South America, Eastern Europe, India, Indonesia, and Japan. They also show how ethnomusicologists "get inside" a culture to document its music. Free from excessive jargon and assuming no formal musical background, Worlds of Music conveys the excitement of ethnomusicology by focusing in depth on the music of a small number of representative groups; looks at music both on its own terms and as a human activity in diverse historical, social, and cultural contexts; features fascinating biographies and oral histories of musicians in diverse cultures; includes many original photographs, drawings, and transcriptions of musical examples; and encourages active student involvement by showing how a beginner may document, play, and even build the instruments used in the music of another culture."--Jacket
Early downhome blues : a musical and cultural analysis by Jeff Todd Titon( Book )

25 editions published between 1977 and 2008 in English and held by 1,177 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Hailed as a classic in music studies when it was first published in 1977, Early Downhome Blues is a detailed look at traditional country blues artists and their work. A compact disk including nineteen outstanding examples of early blues music is included with this new edition." "Combining musical analysis and cultural history, Titon examines the origins of downhome blues in the African American tradition. He also explores what happened to the art form when the blues were commercially recorded and became part of the larger American culture. From forty-eight musical transcriptions, Titon derives a grammar of early downhome blues melody. His book is enriched with the recollections of blues performers, audience members, and those working in the recording industry." "In a new afterword, Titon reflects on the genesis of this book in the blues revival of the 1960s and the politics of tourism in the current revival under way."--Jacket

Old-time Kentucky fiddle tunes by Jeff Todd Titon( )

4 editions published in 2001 in 3 languages and held by 379 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"For years fiddlers and folklorists have prized the old-time fiddle tunes from Kentucky. Many of the most outstanding country music artists hail from the state, including Ricky Skaggs and Bill Monroe, widely regarded as the founder of bluegrass music. Even Aaron Copland lifted, note for note, a Kentucky old-time fiddler's performance of "Bonaparte's Retreat" for the "Hoedown" section of his ballet Rodeo." "That tune and nearly 200 others are transcribed here, most for the first time, from Kentucky fiddlers' home, field-collected, and commercial recordings. These Kentucky source musicians, many of whom were born before 1900, were skilled practitioners of playing styles and tune repertoires that are now extremely rare. Living in a time of transition between the old-time music of the nineteenth century and the modern country music of the twentieth, these fiddlers preserved the older music even as they flirted with the newer tunes and styles."--Jacket

The chapters, all newly written for this volume, theorize applied ethnomusicology, offer histories, and detail practical examples, with the goal of stimulating further development in the field.
