Description

ESSAYS ON ARETHA FRANKLIN, BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN, BOB DYLAN, PAUL MCCARTNEY, LEONARD COHEN, BUDDY GUY, MAVIS STAPLES, PATTI SMITH A Financial Times Book of the Year 2023 The greatest popular songs, whether it's Aretha Franklin singing 'Respect' or Bob Dylan performing 'Blind Willie McTell', have a way of embedding themselves in our memories. You remember a time and a place and a feeling when you hear that song again. In Holding the Note , David Remnick, the Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and editor of The New Yorker , writes about the lives and work of some of the greatest musicians, songwriters, and performers of the past fifty years. He portrays a series of musical lives - Leonard Cohen, Buddy Guy, Mavis Staples, Paul McCartney, Bruce Springsteen, Patti Smith, and more - and their unique encounters with the passing of that essential element of music: time. These are intimate portraits of some of the greatest creative minds of our time written with a lifetime's passionate attachment to music that has shaped us all.
