Product Description

With American Pop: An Audio History, saxophonist Allen Lowe has assembled something truly impressive, a mammoth, nine-hour-long box set of early popular music in America, from 1893 to 1946. That's a lot of tunes--everything from Vess Ossman and John Philip Sousa's concert band to Frank Sinatra, Charlie Parker, and Roy Acuff. The evolution and branching out of the music is impressive enough, but so are Lowe's liner notes, which stretch past 100 pages and somehow succeed at tying all these tunes together. Unlike another canon of early recorded music, Harry Smith's Anthology of American Folk Music, the tunes here are arranged chronologically; it's a staggering affair filled with pop's earliest moments on record--from the Unique Quartette's 1893 cylinder recording of "Mama's Black Baby Boy" to Lenny Tristano's "What Is This Thing Called Love" from 1946. As Lowe explained in a 1998 interview with Amazon.com, the juxtaposition of genres and styles takes over and the tunes--not necessarily bestsellers but always well-chosen--taken as a whole give a history of music like nothing else. An overwhelming set and a must-have for fans of pop music's roots. --Jason Verlinde
