* 2021 stock * Percussionist, Improviser and AMM founding member Eddie Prévost's fourth book presents a fascinating series of reflections and challenging insights on music in its various forms, and the development of improvised music at the intersection of contemporary compositional and conceptual forms; alongside a personal history of Prevost's life and his relationship with music.

"Part personal history, part provocation, here is a compelling book about musical improvisation. But it's also about so much more."-- Ajay Heble, Director, International Institute for Critical Studies in Improvisation, University of Guelph  ".... a very different kind of musician's memoir, a provocative and stimulating account in which the founder-member of AMM questions every aspect of his life and purpose in making music."-Richard Williams  "An uncommon voice that weaves together an extraordinary life of musical exploration and trenchant, relentlessly discomfitting observations on improvised musicking, Eddie Prévost's unsettling An Uncommon Music for the Common Man excoriates critical pretense and academic cant while getting at uncomfortable truths about how and why music matters." Daniel Fischin
