Swing Along

Marva Carter

Renowned today as a prominent African-American in Music Theater and the Arts community, composer, conductor, and violinist Will Marion Cook was a key figure in the development of American music from the 1890s to the 1920s. In this insightful biography, Marva Griffin Carter offers the first definitive look at this pivotal lifes story, drawing on both Cooks unfinished autobiography and his wife Abbies memoir.

A violin virtuoso, Cook studied at Oberlin College (his parents alma mater), Berlins Hochschule für Musik with Joseph Joachim, and New Yorks national Conservatory of Music with Antonin Dvorak. Cook wrote music for a now-lost production of Uncle Toms Cabin for the Chicago Worlds Fair of 1893, and then devoted the majority of his career to black musical comedies due to limited opportunities available to him as a black composer. He was instrumental in showcasing his Southern Syncopated Orchestra in the prominent concert halls of the Unites States and Europe, even featuring New Orleans clarinetist Sidney Bechet, who later introduced European audiences to authentic blues. Once mentored by Frederick Douglas, Will Marion Cook went on to mentor Duke Ellington, paving the path for orchestral concert jazz.

Through interpretive and musical analyses, Carter traces Cooks successful evolution from minstrelsy to musical theater. Written with his collaborator, the distinguished poet Paul Lawrence Dunbar, Cooks musicals infused American Musical Theater with African-American music, consequently altering the direction of American popular music. Cooks In Dahomey, hailed by Gerald Bordman as one of the most important events in American Musical Theater history, was the first full-length Broadway musical to be written and performed by blacks.

Alongside his accomplishments, Carter reveals Cooks contentious side- a man known for his aggressiveness, pride, and constant quarrels, who became his own worst enemy in regards to his career. Carter further sets Cooks life against the backdrop of the changing cultural and social milieu: the black theatrical tradition, white audiences reaction to black performers, and the growing consciousness and sophistication of blacks in the arts, especially music.

Was für ein Debüt! Heute kann man es sich kaum noch vorstellen, wie ungewohnt und geradezu exotisch cleane Gitarren für junge Rock-Fans der späten 70er-Jahre geklungen haben. Dazu kamen Mark Knopflers außergewöhnliche Fingerkünste, straighte Songs mit virtuosen Soli, eine coole Stimme sowie geschmackvolles und ungewohnt künstlerisches LP-Coverdesign. Die Dire Straits kamen, spielten Night/Roar Along With The Singings 20s/Swing Along von ...
