"Horace Tapscott was one of the finest jazz musicians of the last 40 years. That you may not know his name is due to the fact that he chose to remain at home in Los Angeles, taking music to his local communities, rather than head for New York in search of personal glory...as a gripping account of a quietly heroic life, and as a rare document about the West Coast's black cultural underground, Songs of the Unsung is essential reading."--Graham Lock, Jazzwise, July 2001 "Tapscott, a pianist and composer who died in 1999, spent most of his life under the radar of public attention, yet, Songs of the Unsung is an important book. This memoir depicts the musical, social and cultural evolution of Los Angeles over a half century, beginning with Tapscott's decision to jettison a promising career as a trombonist with Lionel Hampton in favour of mending his native Los Angeles neighbourhood, convulsed by traumas of racism and the the travails of inegration. Recalling that 1940s hotbed of L.A. jazz collegiality known as Central Avenue, Tapscott sought to recreate its essence in his Pan Afrikan Peoples Arkestra, an avante-garde ensemble that expanded into an artistic collective, a nexus of political activism and a people's music academy. Songs of the Unsung arose out of an oral history project at UCLA, and was edited by Steven Isoardi. He preserves Tapscott's part-preacher, part-hipster paotios--in which he inflects the word "out" to describe free jazz, police brutality, injustice, good luck, violent rage, unexpected genorisity, spontaneous affection and insanity. Songs of the Unsung is a witness to hope, one man's determination to create art of lasting value and the power of music to connect people. It is, in the profoundest sense, "out"."--International Herald Tribune, 26 April 2001 "Tapscott is one of the fascinating, unsung figures in the history of jazz and political community activism ... The details and local lore of Songs are beautifully rendered, and Tapscott's modesty and perserverance are qualities to behold."--The Wire, December 2002 "Songs of the Unsung - It's about time! Horace Tapscott was one of the first guys doing it in the community. His life has been a big influence on me. He made sure younger and older people played music. He is one of the true giants of this music in the way he played it, wrote it, and lived it."- Billy Higgins "This is a splendid book, a wonderfully accessible first person narrative by an important and unusual figure in the history of jazz and the history of Black Los Angeles. Tapscott has an important story to tell and he conveys his experiences, opinions, and philosophy clearly through an engaging and conversational style filled with rich descriptions and witty observations."- George Lipsitz, author of Dangerous Crossroads: Popular Music, Postmodernism, and the Poetics of Place
