Urban blues by Charles Keil( Book )

58 editions published between 1960 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 1,820 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Charles Keil examines the expressive role of blues bands and performers and stresses the intense interaction between performer and audience. Profiling bluesmen Bobby Bland and B.B. King, Keil argues that they are symbols for the black community, embodying important attitudes and roles -- success, strong egos, and close ties to the community. While writing "Urban Blues" in the mid-1906s, Keil optimistically saw this cultural expression as contributing to the rising tied of raised political consciousness in Afro-America. His new Afterword examines black music in the context of capitalism and black culture in the context of worldwide trends toward diversification. -- From publisher's description

Polka happiness by Charles Keil( Book )

7 editions published in 1992 in English and Undetermined and held by 294 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The polka scene is more than music and dance. It is a year-round carnival that is improvised anew every weekend: a secular ritual full of high jinks and theater, hilarity and tears, that draws its power from sources deep in both Polish and American experience. After tracing the history of polka's spread throughout the world and the emergence of its distinct styles in the United States, the authors focus on Polish-American polkas in Buffalo and Chicago, comparing them with Slovenian-American polka in Milwaukee. Interviews with musicians and fans, old-timers and young enthusiasts, illustrate how polka culture has resisted the melting pot for more than a century

A Companion to D. W. Griffith by Charles Keil( )

2 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 27 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The most comprehensive volume on one of the most controversial directors in American film history  A Companion to D.W. Griffith offers an exhaustive look at the first acknowledged auteur of the cinema and provides an authoritative account of the director’s life, work, and lasting filmic legacy. The text explores how Griffith’s style and status advanced along with cinema’s own development during the years when narrative became the dominant mode, when the short gave way to the feature, and when film became the pre-eminent form of mass entertainment. Griffith was at the centre of each of these changes: though a contested figure, he remains vital to any understanding of how cinema moved from nickelodeon fixture to a national pastime, playing a significant role in the cultural ethos of America. With the renewed interest in Griffith’s contributions to the film industry, A Companion to D.W. Griffith offers a scholarly look at a career that spanned more than 25 years. The editor, a leading scholar on D.W. Griffith, and the expert contributors collectively offer a unique account of one of the monumental figures in film studies. Presents the most authoritative, complete account of the director’s life, work, and lasting legacy Builds on the recent resurgence in the director’s scholarly and popular reputation Edited by a leading authority on D.W. Griffith, who has published extensively on this controversial director  Offers the most up-to-date, singularly comprehensive volume on one of the monumental figures in film studies
