Randy Weston African Rhythms


326 pgs.
Duke University Press, Publ.

Randy Weston, pianist, composer, bandleader, activist, visionary, takes the reader on a most spectacular spiritual journey from Brooklyn to Africa, around the world and back again. He traces this great music from its African roots, acknowledging his influences, praising those artistic and intellectual giants whose paths he crossed, from Langston Hughes to Melba Liston, Dizzy to Monk, Marshall Stearns to Cheikh Anta Diop. In the process, he reveales a man overflowing with ancient wisdom, humility, respect for history, and a capacity for creating astoundingly beautiful music.
