Man In The Music Book CoverMan In The Music (2nd Edition) [Book]
Release date: 27-08-2019

A fully updated of the book 'Man In The Music: The Creative Life And Work' of Michael Jackson will be released on August 27, published by Vintage (Penguin/Random House).

For half a century, Michael Jackson’s music has been an indelible part of our cultural consciousness. Landmark albums such as Off the Wall and Thriller shattered records, broke racial barriers, amassed awards, and set a new standard for popular music. While his songs continue to be played in nearly every corner of the world, however, they have rarely been given serious critical attention. The first book dedicated solely to exploring his creative work, Man in the Music guides us through an unparalleled analysis of Jackson’s recordings, album by album, from his trailblazing work with Quincy Jones to his later collaborations with Teddy Riley, Jimmy Jam, Terry Lewis, and Rodney Jerkins. Drawing on rare archival material and on dozens of original interviews with the collaborators, engineers, producers, and songwriters who helped bring the artist’s music into the world, Jackson expert and acclaimed cultural critic Joseph Vogel reveals the inspirations, demos, studio sessions, technological advances, setbacks and breakthroughs, failures and triumphs, that gave rise to an immortal body of work.

“Brilliantly cracks the DNA of Michael Joseph Jackson. . . . A pointed, intelligent dissection of an epic body of work.” —Spike Lee

“The only comprehensive and critical rundown of Jackson’s solo material.”—Rolling Stone.

“A must-have for any Jackson fan. . . . A fascinating read. . . . Each song Jackson recorded during his solo career is examined with a critical eye.” —Associated Press.

“Don’t be surprised if it makes you go back and listen . . . with a whole new outlook on the King of Pop.”—Zack O’Malley Greenburg, author of Michael Jackson, Inc.

“This is the kind of book about Michael Jackson’s music, artistry, and creativity that really needed to be written—and Joseph Vogel has done it and done it very well. I am absolutely floored by Joe’s in-depth research and perceptive insight into what made Michael the one-of-a-kind, recording-breaking King of Pop. And—amazingly enough—even I learned a lot!”—J. Randy Taraborrelli, author of 'The Magic And The Madness'.

Over Michael Jackson - Een Analyse Van The King Of Pop Book CoverOver Michael Jackson - Een Analyse Van The King Of Pop (Book)
Released: 18-06-2019

The book 'Over Michael Jackson - Een analyse van The King of Pop' book (original title is 'On Michael Jackson') is released in Holland by publisher De Arbeiderspers. This book is the translation into dutch by Pauline Slot.

Michael Jackson, The King of Pop: icon, provocator, mystery. Who was he really? And how are his spectacular rise and catastrophic decline determined by those who have shaped him, who have damaged him and who loved him?

Margo Jefferson wrote an astute analysis of this broken man, who was convicted for his skin and appearance, his inscrutable behavior, his dubious relationship with children. A tragic story that we can only accept if we acknowledge what it evokes in us - despair, sadness, anger, compassion - and try to translate it into wisdom.

Following the abuse that came to light in the documentary 'Leaving Neverland', Margo Jefferson wrote a new introduction.
