REVIEW à Mojo Triangle: Birthplace Of Country, Blues, Jazz Rock N Roll ☆ Mojo Triangle traces the origins of the music that came out of New Orleans the Mississippi Delta Memphis Muscle Shoals and Nashville and explains often in the words of the artists themselves the apocalyptic vision that gave birth to the mMphis Muscle Shoals and Nashville and explains often in the words of the artists themselves the apo. This is a frustrating book it is full of fascinating information but it delivers it in small snippets jumps to the next one not necessarily in any discernible order other than each chapter has a specific focus which he tries to keep to A lot of the focus is on the minor characters rather than the stars which is excellent since they were mostly people of whom I'd not previously heard If you want to listen to the music referred to make notes as you go along there's no musiciansong index at the back which would have been great If you have an interest in the history of music this is well worth a read

Calyptic vision that gave birth to the musicHeavily illustrated with never before seen archive phot.

CHARACTERS Mojo Triangle: Birthplace Of Country, Blues, Jazz Rock N Roll

Mojo Triangle Birthplace Of Country Blues Jazz Rock N RollMojo Triangle traces the origins of the music that came out of New Orleans the Mississippi Delta Me. The book investigates and loosely tries to explain why all of America's uniue music forms were born in the triangle formed by New Orleans Memphis and Nashville Jazz Blues Rock and Country were all started here by people from here He sort of writes off hip hop crudely as being largely derivative which is highly debatable Anyway it is pretty staggering to contemplate that all of these original American forms originated in the Mojo TriangleThe author's extremely loose thesis is that the land's history lots of floods wars etc inhabitants music loving Indians slaves creolecarribean and just inherent spookiness and character provided the fuel and catalysts necessary to innovate and produce artistically in a uniue and powerful manner The author doesn't really spend too much effort in proving this one way or another Largely the book is a collection of stories about the influential people places and times that produced such an amazing amount of musical culture How Elvis got discovered how Louis Armstrong got his first cornet did Robert Johnson sell his soul at the crossroads Fellow Drive by Truckers fans will be amused to see that Patterson Hood 's dad David Hood is featured prominently in the chapter about Muscle Shoals he played bass in the classic Muscle Shoals studio bandI'd recommend this book highly to fans of roots music who want to see how it all ties together
