Summary "Soundworks takes the many recorded collaborations between African American poets and musicians associated with the long Black Arts era (late-1950s through mid-1970s) as the occasion to reframe the object of black sound studies as the product of material,technical, sensual, and ideological forces. Through new interpretations of Langston Hughes, Charles Mingus, Amiri Baraka, and the disparate experimental modes of "free jazz" practiced by Archie Shepp, Matana Roberts, Cecil Taylor, Jeanne Lee, and Jayne Cortez, Soundworks recovers the visionary world-making impulses encoded in the poetics of experimental practice and the alternative forms of communal and individual being to which those practices correspond"-- Provided by publisher.
