Description

130-page book about the album and artist to be published in April. Written by Jordan Ferguson.

Author Jordan Ferguson interviewed pretty much everyone associated with the album’s creation – Stones Throw’s PB Wolf, Jeff Jank, Eothen Alapatt – and many of Dilla’s associates in his L.A. and Detroit years. The book is not merely a behind the scenes look at the creation of Donuts, but a look at Dilla’s career as a whole, his influences, his music styles, and the art of the music itself. The jacket reads, “Drawing from philosophy, critical theory and musicology, as well as Dilla’s own musical catalog, Jordan Ferguson shows that the contradictory, irascible and confrontational music found on Donuts is as much a result of an artist’s declining health as it is an example of what scholars call ‘late style,’ placing the album in a musical tradition that stretches back centuries.”

About the author: Jordan Ferguson is based in Toronto and writes on his own blog Poetry for Grave Diggers.

About the publisher: 33 1/3 Books is a series of short volumes each devoted to a classic album. Published by Bloomsbury, the series was launched in 2003 and has published nearly 100 titles.
