  • Wax Poetics Anthology Volume 2


When Wax Poetics debuted in 2001, many magazines were covering the artists of the day, but coverage on classic material was noticeably lacking. This second volume of Wax Poetics Anthology continues in the magazine's tradition of bridging the gap. From jazz pioneers like Eugene McDaniels, Sun Ra, and Joe Zawinul to influential hip-hop artists like DJ Premier and the Beastie Boys, Wax Poetics Anthology, Volume 2 presents a diverse array of musical puzzle pieces and gives readers the opportunity to make the connections themselves. 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 magazineís 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.
