01-Joyeux-07Recordings on phonograph cylinders, gramophone discs and films, with both still and moving images, feature people of African descent in Europe from the earliest years of the recording industry and continued after the First World War. The contribution of these pioneering personalities on the modern mass media has not been noticed – recognition is overdue. Music, spoken word and dance, from all styles, categories, languages and natal lands provide a lost but rich resource. Many artefacts may be lost forever, but this project traces the surviving evidence.

Collected in two 12 x 12 inch coffee table book with almost 600 full-colour pages, here is a multitude of documents, artefacts and curiosities, from passport applications, personal memorabilia and letters, to sheet music, newspaper ads and fabulous poster art, complemented by contemporary postcards and images of  wax cylinders and disc records. In more than 100 chapters the life and times of these pioneering entertainers, musicians and linguists comes to life, from early film and sound examples to best-selling 78 rpm records, from ‘human zoos’ and minstrel shows to ethnological documentation and portraits of the (sometimes dubious) movers and shakers in European showbusiness of the time.

From African-Americans comes an aural kaleidoscope of entertainers and music from the last days of minstrelsy through ragtime and music hall artists to string bands, spirituals, and the early days of jazz in Europe, including the earliest examples of stride piano and rhythm scat singing, and some of the first records made anywhere of African-American folk music practices. From Africans come recordings of African languages and folk tales, religious music on both African and European models, and recordings of the popular music of the 1920s. Also documented is the involvement of those born in Europe of African descent in the wider culture of the African diaspora.

No review can do full credit to this extraordinary box set. Cheap it may not be, astonished you surely will be.

Black Europe ist ein Meisterwerk, dass beachtet werden muss.

Ein Jahrhundertwerk zur Geschichte schwarzer Musik in Europa!
WDR 3 16.01.2014

 
From: Redecker 2014-03-13 12:55:45

The scope, variety and qualities revealed by the books and the recordings are immense and almost numbing in impact - an impact that's all the greater because they tell stories that we have never heard before.
The Independent 21.11.13 John Clarke

 
From: König / Schulz 2013-11-02 18:20:09

Großartige Box mit 45 CDs!! und zwei LP großen Büchern, mit fast 700 Seiten an Informationen.
Diese Box ist so GUT und WUNDERVOLL geworden, dass man sie nicht mit Worten oder einem Video beschreiben kann.
Black Europe ist für mich das Meisterstück aus dem Hause Bear Family.

 
From: Fricke 2012-12-25 17:16:08

Klingt extrem spannend! .... aber bei dem Preis wird es wohl nur ein Wunschtraum beiben.
