Notable 2016 titles include:

Categorizing Sound: Genre and Twentieth-Century Popular Music
David Brackett | University of California Press

"With Categorizing Sound, David Brackett has given us a clearly written, cogently argued treatise on why genre matters. By focusing on the ways we produce genres rather than on the content of those categories—that is, by linking musical sound to social practice—Brackett’s nuanced analytics impart meaningful insights beyond musicology."
—Kevin Fellezs, author of Birds of Fire: Jazz, Rock, Funk, and the Creation of Fusion

Erik Satie: A Parisian Composer and his World
Caroline Potter | Boydell & Brewer 

"This is a fascinating tour of Satie's richly bizarre Parisian environment, offering new and valuable insights for both listeners and performers."
BBC Music Magazine
