George Lewis wins American Book Award

A Power Stronger than Itself, George Lewis' history of the AACM and American experimental music, was a winner of the American Book Award, presented by the Before Columbus Foundation. Lewis is the Improvisation and Pedagogy coordinator and a co-investigator with ICASP.
