SOUL ON SOUL: THE LIFE AND MUSIC OF MARY LOU WILLIAMS

By Dr. Tammy Kernodle

Northeastern University Press, April 2004, 348 pp., $30 cloth, ISBN 1-55553-606-9

Pianist, composer and arranger, Mary Lou Williams (1910-1981), was one of the most significant and influential artists in the history of jazz. Yet throughout her prolific career of nearly six decades, she battled as an African American woman to achieve recognition, equality and acceptance in the male-dominated world of jazz. In this definitive volume, Dr. Tammy Kernodle affirms Williams' artistic brilliance and lasting legacy, interweaving biographical details with incisive commentary on her music, performances and recordings.

Dr. Tammy L. Kernodle is an associate professor of musicology at Miami University in Oxford, Ohio.

THE PRACTICE OF DIASPORA: LITERATURE, TRANSLATION, AND THE RISE OF BLACK INTERNATIONALISM

By Dr. Brent Edwards, Harvard University Press, 2003 407 pp., $55.00 cloth, ISBN 0-674-01022-1, $24.95, paperback, ISBN 0-674-01103-1

The Practice of Diaspora revisits Black transnational culture in the 1920s and 1930s, paying particular attention to links between intellectuals in New York and their Francophone counterparts in Paris. Dr. Brent Edwards suggests that Diaspora is less a historical condition than a set of practices: the claims, correspondences and collaborations through which Black intellectuals pursue a variety of international alliances. In reading a diverse archive -- the works of writers and editors from Langston Hughes, René Maran and Claude McKay to Paulette Nardal, Alain Locke, W.E.B. Du Bois, George Padmore and Tiemoko Garan Kouyaté -- Edwards takes account of the highly divergent ways of imagining race beyond the barriers of nation and language.

Dr. Brent Edwards is an associate professor of English at Rutgers University.
