NEW YORK, NY – Crony Books is pleased to announce the publication of a new book, For the Artists: Critical Writing, Volume 2, by Greg Masters.

While For the Artists: Critical Writing, Volume 1, issued earlier this year, focused on Masters' collected writings on the visual arts, this new volume gathers reviews of music and books, including critical essays and interviews with musicians.

Perhaps most prominent are a series of essays on the electric period of Miles Davis. In-depth reviews examine the aural sensations this creative artist forged in the late 60s through mid-70s, a continual reinvention of sounds that, as Masters claims, is “rebellious in its uncompromising intensity and uncategorizable for its urgent flooding past genre definitions."

Other essays in the book examine the work of Gertrude Stein, William Wordsworth, William Carlos Williams and Blaise Cendrars.

The 176-page book (ISBN: 978-0-9859267-5-5, publication date: September 2014) is available as a softcover for $9.99 from Crony Books. It is also available as an e-book from most online sources.

“Greg Masters always hears things others miss." —James Hale, DownBeat Magazine
