Jeff Buckley's Grace: 33 1/3

Autor Daphne A. Brooks
en Limba Engleză Paperback – iun 2005
The power and influence of Grace increases with each passing year. Here, Daphne Brooks traces Jeff Buckley's fascinating musical development through the earliest stages of his career, up to the release of the album. With access to rare archival material, Brooks illustrates Buckley's passion for life and hunger for musical knowledge, and shows just why he was such a crucial figure in the American music scene of the 1990s.EXCERPT:Jeff Buckley was piecing together a contemporary popular music history for himself that was steeped in the magic of singing. He was busy hearing how Dylan channeled Billie Holiday in Blonde On Blonde and how Robert Plant was doing his best to sound like Janis Joplin on early Led Zeppelin recordings. He was thinking about doo-wop and opera and Elton John and working at developing a way to harness the power of the voice...In the process, he was re-defining punk and grunge "attitude" itself by rejecting the ambivalent sexual undercurrents of those movements, as well as Led Zeppelin's canonical "cock rock" kingdom that he'd grown up adoring. He was forging a one-man revolution set to the rhythms of New York City and beyond. And he was on the brink of recording his elegant battle in song for the world to hear.

Such inspiration is seen in Brooks' current book project, 'Jeff Buckley's Grace,'... The book will examine the legacy of the singer-guitarist, who only released one full-length studio album but had amassed a cult following before he drowned at the age of 30.
...Daphne Brooks reveals and obsession- so intense it'll make you blanche- with the late Jeff Buckley.
I had been waiting and looking for this sound all of my own life,' writes Daphne Brooks in the introduction to her book on Jeff Buckley's debut album. She writes about nursing an intense emotional connection to Grace, which she admits is 'the most unlikely muse for my American black girl experience.' That is, however, not her conclusion, but a starting point for the book that tries to ascertain the nature of that bond . She delves deep enough to find new perspectives on the music, but fortunately not so deep that she dissolves the strange power of this mystery white boy.
