Ben Sidran: A Life in the Music is much more than a musician's memoir; it's a picaresque story about a personal quest, the search for meaning at the beginning of a new millennium. Sidran delves into the complex relationships between African-Americans and Jews, fathers and sons, history and hope, money and technology, ecstasy and transformation. His animated, well-crafted prose deftly expresses his life-long affair with music in all its functions: as prayer, as community, as legacy, and as nothing but a party. It is a Pilgrim's Progress for another generation.
