Here, for your consideration, is the Top 10 list published in Billboard magazine toward end of last year, in issue date November 30 2013: This list contains many of the year's best-selling acts And, track-for-track, it looks like a fairly representative cross-section of 2013 Pop. Except it is not popat least, not according to the music-industry bible. This wasnt Top 10 of Billboard's All-genre, authoritative Hot 100 chart. This was the Top 10 of magazines ' Hot R & B / Hip-Hop Songs chart. This Top 10 might make you cock eyebrows if, like me, you define Rhythm-And-Blues and Hip-Hop as music largely, though not exclusively, conceived by, aimed at, and consumed by African-Americans. Obviously, whites Can and Do make excellent R & B and Rap. The question is one of degree: in 2013, Hot R & B / Hip-Hop Songs chart was Top by a Caucasian person 44 out of 52 weeks, including 37 straight weeks, January to October, where it was Top by either Hip-Hop Duo Macklmore & Ryan Lewis or blue-eyed Soul singer Robin Thicke. Is it credible that charts devoted to Black-derived music should be dominated by White acts most of the time? Ideally, any effective genre chartbe, it R & B, Latin, Country, even alt-Rock doesnt just track particular strain of music, which can be marked by ever-changing boundaries and ultimately impossible to define. It meant to track the audience. This is a subtle but vital difference. If the R & B chart tries to cover whatever might be termed R & B Music, you get into the subjective, slippery business of determining what, or who, is Black enough for the chart. That wouldnt be appropriate for Billboard, purportedly objective arbiter of the music business. The goal is not to racially profile record buyers, either. Instead, by tracking R & B and Hip-Hop audiencethose who seek out Black Radio stations and maintain a steady diet of beats, rhymes, and Soul, regardless of their own ethnic makeupyou, get a much better read of the pulse of actual fans of music: those who live and breathe it, week In, week Out. That used to be what Billboard S R & B / Hip-Hop Songs chart do. It not what It do anymore. Mind you, this isnt first time Billboard has run an R & B chart with so many white face. For comparison, let go back 50 years. In Billboard issue date November 23 1963, just under half of the Top 10 on the Hot R & B Singles chart were by White acts. And I mean really white. Hanging around that week's Top Five were a pair of Boy-Girl duets with easy-listening Pop vocals: Deep Purple by Nino Tempo and April Stevens and Im Leaving It Up to You by Dale & Grace. Somewhat more authentic was Rock legend Roy Orbisons Mean Woman blue No. 8 R & B that weeka song obviously rooted in the 12-bar Blues tradition, but one that had been recorded by a string of traditional rock'nroll acts, including Elvis Presley and Cliff Richard. And What was No. 1 on R & B chart back then?

Author

Noted jazz and pop record producer Thiele offers a chatty autobiography. Aid by record-business colleague Golden, Thiele traces his career from his start as a pubescent, novice jazz record producer' in the 1940s through '50s, when he headed Coral, Dot, and Roulette Records, and '60s, when he worked for ABC and ran the famous Impulse! Jazz label. At Coral, Thiele championed the work of hillbilly' singer Buddy Holly, although only sessions he produced with Holly were mar by saccharine strings. Producers specialize in more mainstream popsters, like irrepressibly perky Teresa Brewer and bubble-machine muzak-meister Lawrence Welk. At Dot, Thiele was instrumental in recording Jack Kerouac's famous beat-generation ramblings to jazz accompaniment, while also overseeing a steady stream of pop hits. He then moved to the Mafia-control Roulette label, where he observes silk-suit, pinky-ringed' entourage who frequent the label's offices. Incredibly, however, Thiele remembers famously hard-nosed Morris Levy, who ran a label and was eventually convicted of extortion, as one of the kindest, most warm-hearted, and classiest music men I have ever know. ' At ABC / Impulse!, Thiele oversaw classic recordings of John Coltrane, although he is first to admit that Coltrane essentially produced his own sessions. Like many producers of the day, Thiele participated in ownership of publishing rights to some of the songs he record; he makes no apology for this practice, which he calls entirely appropriate and without any ethical conflicts. ' pleasant, if not exactly riveting, memoir that will be of most interest to those with a thirst for cocktail-hour stories of record biz.

Description

Hanif Abdurraqib Two Dollar Radio softcover 15. 99 978-1937512-65-1 loneliness, loss, and confusion of the last few years loom large over these pages, but so, too, does the idea of hope. Hanif Abdurraqibs They Cant Kill Us Until They Kill Us is a penetrating and profoundly timely collection of essays. It is music writing at its sharpest, most perceptive, and most urgent. In forty short essays, covering everything from Princes ' iconic Super Bowl half-time show to the deeply sad project that is Fleetwood Macs Rumors, Abdurraqib uses music as a window through which to examine the bigger picture. This, more than anything, he wrote in an early essay on Chance Rapper, is about everything and everyone that didnt get swallowed by the vicious and yawning maw of 2016. Music alone may not be able to pull us back from the brink, Abdurraqib suggests, but that doesnt mean it ca work small miracles. Most remarkable, perhaps, is Abdurraqibs ability to perceive and define connections between his subjects, himself, and fracture, complicated culture in which we liveto see things other writers do or cant. Essay on seeing Bruce Springsteen live, for example, become meditation on the optimism of River before it shifts to considering Mike Brown, Ferguson, and the promise of living. He writes just as passionately on Allen Iversons crossover as he does on growing up young, black, and Muslim in the Midwest. In best of these essays, Abdurraqiba poet as well as criticgrasps, at not only what it means to be a music fan in America at this point in history, but, ultimately, what it is to exist in America. If feelings of sadness, loneliness, loss, confusion, and hatred of the last few years loom large over these pagesand they doso, too, do idea of hope: both the search for it and the pleasure of finding it in the most surprising of places. I work, in times as urgent as these, to unlock small pockets of joy that have kept us all surviving for so long, he write. With this book, hes unlocks one small such pocket for the rest of us.
