A book by Alex Ross, music critic at “The New Yorker” magazine is an interesting one. In this book the author explores all music from classical to rock and jazz as a unit and pays a particular attention to the people, who make the music and often transform it beyond recognition. His new book “Listen to This” is a compilation of articles in which Bjork with her musical experiments coexists with Frank Sinatra or, for instance, with Renaissance dances. The author fascinatingly tells about the problems of musical education in America, about jazz, rock and other musical styles and genres. The book is not purely about jazz, it is also about music on the whole. It will surely attract all music lovers, including hipsters.
