New publication!

I found out purely by accident this morning that the fabulous Joe Schloss and I have co-authored a short book called Hip-hop and Hip-hop Dance. How did I not know this in advance, you might ask?

Joe and I both published long essays in the most recent edition of the AmeriGrove (The Grove Dictionary of American Music and Musicians). I wrote the lead Hip-hop essay, and Joe wrote the lead Hip-hop dance essay. Oxford University Press apparently decided to put our essays together for a Grove Music Essentials volume, and published it as a Kindle book last summer. We didn’t know this was happening. Imagine our surprise!

This “book” is only 35 pages long, so if you are looking for a solid, short introduction to Hip-hop and Hip-hop Dance for yourself or for students, and you don’t have a subscription to Grove Music / Oxford Music Online, at $3.99 this is an inexpensive alternative.

Here’s hoping it will be useful! Let us know what you think!
