Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Nick Tosches spent 20 years searching for facts about Emmett Miller, the yodeling blackface performer whose songs prefigured jazz, country, blues, and much of the popular music of the twentieth century. Starting with a handful of 78 rpm records and ending at a graveyard in Macon, Georgia, Tosches chronicles a remarkable journey of discovery that illuminates Miller's life, his legacy, and the world of American popular music.

Synopsis:

A forgotten singer from the early days of jazz is at the center of this riveting book--a narrative that is part mystery, part biography, part meditation on the meaning and power of music.
