"While this reviewer would ordinarily refrain from recommending the purchase of any book by all libraries, regardless the type, clientele, or size, I unhesitatingly and enthusiastically recommend International Dictionary of Black Composers to all those who can afford it. It is THAT important." -- Reference & User Services Quarterly

"A truly indispensable resource for both comprehensive music collections and libraries that need to cover a lot of ground with one purchase." -- Library Journal (starred review)

"This indispensable reference is an essential purchase for school, public, and academic libraries." -- Library Journal, Best Reference
