A Power Stronger Than Itself

George Lewis has finally completed A Power Stronger Than Itself: The AACM and American Experimental Music, and it will be released next month from the University of Chicago Press. This is the culmination of years of work and it is an essential history of one of the most important and influential music collectives in the country.

Peter Margasak at the Chicago Reader has a preview and an interview with George. I’ve been looking forward to this book for a long time.
