Music in America
by Adelaida Reyes

Another volume in my quest to finish off the Global Music Series, Music In America grapples with the American music scene and what makes music American. Covering American music in around 100 pages is a nigh-impossible task, but Reyes does a great job of conveying the breadth. She touches on folk music, Native American music, jazz, popular music, Broadway musicals, and America's contributions to classical and avant-garde music. Her main themes are the diversity of American music and the underlying unity of those who make it. Unfortunately, Reyes is not left with much space to investigate anything in depth, or to look into the way any of this music works.
