It's a scream how Levine does the rhumba : the Latin-Jewish musical story: 1940s-1980s( Recording )

1 edition published in 2013 and held by 51 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Welcome to one of the great unsung currents of American pop music: the forgotten musical mash-up of Latin and Jewish, bagels and bongos, Spanish and Yiddish, manteca and schmaltz, that's been a bubbling undercurrent of American pop music since the early 1900s. It's a story full of Jewish mambo dancers, Jewish salsa greats, beloved sidemen, and record label chiefs on the one hand, and Latino bandleaders, singers, composers, and entrepreneurs on the other. It's a Scream How Levine Does the Rhumba: The Latin-Jewish Musical Story, 1940s-1980s, is the first of its kind to excavate and mine this cross-cultural tale. Featuring legendary names like Eddie Palmieri, Celia Cruz, Herb Alpert, Carole King, Tito Puente, and many more, it offers an in-depth historical examination of the relationships between Latinos and Jews in America through the sound of popular music"--Publisher's website
