As Serious As Your Life: Black Music and the Free Jazz Revolution, 1957-1977

by Val Wilmer
£12.99   paperback  Profile Books Ltd (2018)

As Serious As Your Life: Black Music and the Free Jazz Revolution, 1957-1977 by Val Wilmer An essential masterpiece of jazz history by renowned photographer and music historian, with a new foreword by Richard Williams.
 
In this classic account of the new black music of the 1960s and 70s, celebrated photographer and jazz historian Val Wilmer tells the story of how a generation of revolutionary musicians established black music as the true vanguard of American culture.
 
Placing the achievements of African-American artists such as Albert Ayler, Ornette Coleman, John Coltrane and Sun Ra in their broader political and social context, Wilmer evokes an era of extraordinary innovation and experimentation that continues to inspire musicians today.
 
As vital now as when it was first published in 1977, As Serious As Your Life is the essential story of one of the most dynamic musical movements of the twentieth century.
