Music, American Made draws on a wealth of new research and analysis to offer fresh observations on musical events and developments in American music from the 1820s to the 1970s, and brings into timely relief the extraordinary diversity of music composed and performed in the United States in that pivotal period. The twenty-nine essays in the volume honor John Graziano, a distinguished scholar of American music, Emeritus Professor of Music at The Graduate Center and the City College of The City University of New York, former President of the Society for American Music, and the director of the Music in Gotham project. Topics range from particular interests of the honoree -- the reception of European music in New York and other U.S. cities, African-American musical theater, the minstrel show, the film musical -- to, among other subjects, the growth of orchestras in the United States, opera, folk music, and hymnody.

John Koegel is Professor of Musicology at California State University, Fullerton.Review:
"John Graziano's colleagues and students pay tribute to a music historian profoundly engaged with issues of music and culture and whose intellectual curiosity continues to expand the interdisciplinary relevance of American music studies. Scholars working in musical theater, African-American studies, urban social history, and other areas will be grateful for this sparkling collection." --Judith Tick, author of Ruth Crawford Seeger: A Composer's Search for American Music; co-editor of Aaron Copland and His World; and editor of Music in the USA: A Documentary Companion
"Music, American Made is made by a rich pool of the finest writers on American music, in honor of one of the discipline's leaders. For those who savor America's musical traditions, this book is a feast." --Dale Cockrell, author of Demons of Disorder: Early Blackface Minstrels and Their World; and editor of The Ingalls Wilder Family Songbook and Excelsior: Journals of the Hutchinson Family Singers
"Musicology's embrace of musical life in the United States began in earnest with the Bicentennial Anniversary in 1976, and the decades that followed emphasized eighteenth- and twentieth-century traditions. This book of essays honoring John Graziano shows that, in the twenty-first century, the essential contributions of musicians in America born during the 1800s are being rediscovered and appreciated, a fitting tribute to the honoree." --Richard Crawford, author of America's Musical Life: A History; William Billings of Boston: Eighteenth-Century Composer; and The American Musical Landscape
