Meeting Jimmie Rodgers

Barry Mazor

In Meeting Jimmie Rodgers, the first book to explore the deep legacy of The Singing Brakeman from a twenty-first century perspective, Barry Mazor offers a lively look at Rodgers career, tracing his rise from working-class obscurity to the pinnacle of renown that came with such hits as Blue Yodel and In the Jailhouse Now. As Mazor shows, Rodgers brought emotional clarity and a unique sense of narrative drama to every song he performed, whether tough or sentimental, comic or sad. His wistful singing, falsetto yodels, bold flat-picking guitar style, and sometimes censorable themes--sex, crime, and other edgy topics--set him apart from most of his contemporaries. But more than anything else, Mazor suggests, it was Rodgers shape-shifting ability to assume many public personas--working stiff, decked-out cowboy, suave ladies man--that connected him to such a broad public and set the stage for the stars who followed him. In reconstructing this far-flung legacy, Mazor enables readers to meet Rodgers and his music anew-not as an historical figure, but as a vibrant, immediate force.
