Host Jo Reed and AudioFile’s Robin Whitten discuss the audiobook narrated by Jim Meskimen with a steely timbre and vocal confidence. His intelligent performance of these captivating stories, insights, and reflections is a delight to hear, and he helps us share in the author’s enthusiasm. Guralnick writes about familiar artists and performers along with lesser-known performers, writers, and promoters who were just as critical to music’s ascendence in American culture.
