Horn Man explores the history of twentieth-century Detroit's Polish-American musical landscape. The beauty of Polish and Polish-American customs and culture is also illumined. Music is an inseparable part of Polish life, and because of polka's communal aspect, polka musicians are some of the best examples American society has of family bonds and Christian values. The pillar Detroit polka band-leaders who came of age during the Great Depression were, for the most part, community oriented and family focused. Therefore, while they were superstars in their own galaxy and their names readily recognizable in their own circles, in general, their names were not quite as prominent as those of the well-known superstars of the Polka Era. They were, however, no less talented and diversified and their lives no less fascinating than those of their contemporaries in other Polish-American communities (Polania). In fact, it was their diversification, entrepreneurial skills, and ability to adapt that ensured that they survived in an erratic, chaotic industry. They were trained in theory and the classics, as well as in jazz, voice, and the popular big-band dance music of the era. Along with their colleagues across America, they were among the nation's first ethnomusicologists and the creators of a new genre of American music. They recorded on major record labels, created and developed their own record labels, published sheet music, appeared on radio and television, performed with visiting luminaries and for traveling dignitaries, and became savvy marketers of their product: musical entertainment. Yet, as a result of technological innovations, the influx of rock and roll, and the trend toward an increasing American ethnocentrism, their heyday was tragically brief and fleeting.

I purchased "Horn Man: The Polish-American Musician in Twentieth Century Detroit" for a friend of mine who has always been a long-time fan of Bernie Witkowski. He told me he couldn't believe such a book was even written! In other words, he was impressed and more than satisfied. It comes highly recommended for music lovers of that genre.

My father is mentioned in this book, along with my two Uncles. Horn Man is a fabulous book. Fabulously written. Music lovers, big band era, everywhere, this is your book!

Ethnic music was big business from the dawn of recording through the 1950s, and the polka bands of Polish-American communities represented a vibrant mix of Horatio Alger pull-yourself-up-by-the-bootstraps, self-taught musicians who knew their art, and old-fashioned ethnic pride. For those brave enough to broach the narrow parameters defined by a politically correct "multiculturalism," this book can be a real insight into just how successful one ethnic community was.
