Wax Poetics Anthology, Volume 2, the third book from the
esteemed music journal showcasing everyone from jazz
and Hip Hop heavyweights to soul and funk musicians,
gathers articles from Issues 6 through 10 into a musthave
hardbound edition for record collectors and music
connoisseurs alike.

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 magazine’s 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.
