"Although numerous African American-focused reference works cover music, this superb source admirably demonstrates the need for such a specialized work. Highly recommended for both public and academic libraries." - Library Journal, Starred Review
"In addition to the well-illustrated biographical and topical entries . . . the set includes a detailed time line, three appendixes, two selected bibliographies, and brief biographies of the editors and contributors. . . . Recommended." - Choice
"The wonderful thing about these volumes is that they afford readers the opportunity to learn about long-forgotten or little-remembered artists who made major contributions to African American music." - School Library Journal
"Impressive in scope, depth, and scholarship, this three-volume encyclopedia is broader, more extensive, and more up-to-date than reference works that have come before, finding room in particular for expansive coverage of contemporary music and thoughtful reexamination of connections with music of the past." - Reference & Research Book News
