sevebk Amiri Baraka, who passed away earlier this year, would have been 80 today. This book from him, Black Music, is one of my favorite collections of music journalism. The book focuses on his writings about jazz in the 60s, with him offering observations on Coltrane, Monk, Miles, and many others in their prime, but his observations remain relevant to current events in Hip-Hop and R&B. One thing I learned from his writing is if one wants to cover a genre or a major moment in music history, you have to also understand the cultural meaning of it and how social factors influenced the development of said music. The impact he had on music writing altered the way how black music in America is analyzed, and his contributions will live on for a very long time.
