In this classic work of American music writing, renowned critic
Albert Murray argues beautifully and authoritatively that "the
blues as such are synonymous with low spirits. Not only is its
express purpose to make people feel good, which is to say in high
spirits, but in the process of doing so it is actually expected to
generate a disposition that is both elegantly playful and heroic in
its nonchalance." In Stomping the Blues Murray explores its
history, influences, development, and meaning as only he can. More
than two hundred vintage photographs capture the ambiance Murray
evokes in lyrical prose. Only the sounds are missing from this
lyrical, sensual tribute to the blues.
