The Latin Tinge: The Impact of Latin American Music on the United States

The Latin Tinge: The Impact of Latin American Music on the United States Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Tejano superstar Selena and the tango revival both in the dance clubs and on Broadway are only the most obvious symptoms of how central Latin music is to American musical life. Latino rap has brought a musical revolution, while Latin and Brazilian jazz are ever more significant on the jazz scene. With the first edition of The Latin Tinge, John Storm Roberts offered revolutionary insight into the enormous importance of Latin influences in U.S. popular music of all kinds. Now, in this revised second edition, Roberts updates the history of Latin American influences on the American music scene over the last twenty years.

From the merengue wave to the great traditions of salsa and norteña music to the fusion styles of Cubop and Latin rock, Roberts provides a comprehensive review. With an update on the jazz scene and the careers of legendary musicians as well as newer bands on the circuit, the second edition of The Latin Tinge sheds new light on a rich and complex subject: the crucial contribution that Latin rhythms are making to our uniquely American idiom.

Synopsis:

In this revised second edition, Roberts updates the history of Latin American influences on the American music scene over the last 20 years. 50 halftones.
