Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book Groove: An Aesthetic of Measured Time contains the table of contents. Groove music or musical groove began as a Western phenomenon like many other aspects of Western culture in the era of globalisation, has now spread to other parts of the world. This book thoroughly examines the features of groove, what makes it work and how it differs from other kinds of music. It tries to find answers to two crucial questions for a study of musical temporality: What kind of relationship exists between musical time and the time outside music, social time? And what kind of methodology is appropriate for a historical materialist analysis of music?

Keywords: Christopher Small; musical groove; Western concert-music tradition
