Descrição da editora

In its own unique way, Tulsa, Oklahoma proudly stands shoulder to shoulder alongside some of America's largest cities when it comes to a broad influence on multiple genres of music.

But exactly what is the Tulsa Sound? And how have numerous people from that city in northeastern Oklahoma contributed to this rhythm of life that is known as music?

Elven Lindblad embarked on a journey to answer those questions. What was discovered along the way created not only the eBook Tulsa Sounds, but a heightened knowledge and appreciation for Tulsa's contributions to music around the world.

Don't be surprised if this detailed, yet entertaining, eBook does the same for you.

Drawing on his four decades of experience in research and writing, Lindblad tells not only the stories about people from Tulsa involved in the evolution of American music but presents fascinating facts and little-known tidbits about other places and events. Such as…
