When Wax Poetics debuted in 2001, many magazines were covering the artists of the day, but coverage of the classical material was noticeably lacking. This second volume continues in the magazine's tradition of bridging the gap - from Jazz pioneers to Eugene McDaniels, Sun Ra and Joe Zawinul to influential hip-hop artists like DJ Premier and the Beastie Boys. By presenting a diverse array of puzzle pieces, this collection gives readers the opportunity to make connections for themselves.

Author Biography - The Wax Poetics Team
First published in December 2001, Brooklyn-born "Wax Poetics" hit newsstands with a new vision for music journalism, creating a bridge between the past and present of Hip Hop, jazz, funk, soul, reggae, disco, and Latin music. Although originally created for a concentrated market of music aficionados, the magazine's audience has grown exponentially, making musical anthropologists out of average music listeners and spawning a soul renaissance, complete with comeback tours and sophomore efforts. "Wax Poetics" illuminates the dark corners of our sonic past, while also striving to give new and innovative artists the credit they truly deserve.
