Compiled after Rice’s death by Buckley & co., this intructor collects an astounding variety of fun, political, satirical, and mysterious musical items in this book, connecting the “heights” of European classical music with the profound roots of Transatlantic & global traditions.  Joe Ayers calls it:

… a most far flung hodgepodge of musical influences, possibly the greatest ever bound together under one cover.

Tim Twiss has recorded all the instrumental tunes contained herein; you can listen to some of his tracks here.
