Summary
  • "Spanning more than a thousand separate performances, The Music of Bill Monroe presents a complete chronological list of all of Bill Monroe's commercially released sound and visual recordings. Each chapter begins with a narrative describing Monroe's life and career at that point as well as the producers, sidemen, and others who become part of the story. The narratives, a who's who of bluegrass, connect Monroe to the music's larger history and contain many intriguing stories. The second part of each chapter presents a discography of Monroe's work during those years. The information includes a session's place, date, time, and producer; master/​matrix numbers, song/​tune titles, composer credits, personnel, instruments, and vocals; and catalog/​release numbers and reissue data." "The only complete bio-discography of this American musical icon, The Music of Bill Monroe is the starting point for any study of Monroe's contributions as a composer, interpreter, and performer."--BOOK JACKET.
