Roholt provides an eminently approachable study of a commonplace phenomenon in music-groove, or the rhythmic feel of music that makes listeners want to move. The author is a professional drummer as well as a philosopher, and he does an excellent job of combining philosophy and musical experience. The study will be particularly useful in introducing music students to the phenomenology of music and recent developments in music psychology. The argument is lucid yet sophisticated, and the groove phenomenon is so universal and appreciable that the book has excellent interdisciplinary potential. The useful bibliography-a blend of music, philosophy, and psychology titles-could make the backbone for a graduate seminar. Summing Up: Highly recommended. Upper-division undergraduates through faculty and professionals; general readers. -- M. Dineen, University of Ottawa, School of Music CHOICE This book is a welcome addition to the ever-growing field of the philosophy of music. It tackles with a lot of clarity an overlooked subject -- the phenomenon of groove -- which is crucial in the appreciation of a great number of popular music genres (e.g., jazz, reggae, funk, rhythm and blues, hip-hop). -- Clement Canonne, University of Burgundy Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews For decades, philosophers and theorists of music have been promising an embodied phenomenology of music. Tiger C. Roholt's Groove is an original and insightful essay that makes good on that promise. Roholt challenges analytic and quantificational approaches to rhythmic nuance and argues that grooves are non-conceptual, felt, and understood through bodily engagement. Full of smart musical examples and sound arguments, Groove is much more than just a book on rhythm or drumming. It is a cornerstone for any future phenomenology of music. Brian Kane, Associate Professor of Music, Yale University, USA Exploring uncharted philosophical territory, Tiger C. Roholt's smart, thorough account of groove pushes us to rethink the nature of music and musical engagement. Experiencing music is not merely a matter of how it sounds, because how it sounds can be a function of how it feels. Theodore Gracyk, Professor of Philosophy, Minnesota State University Moorhead, USA and author of On Music and co-editor of The Routledge Companion to Philosophy and Music Featuring elegant, lucid, and accessible prose, Groove underscores how musical notions-whether aesthetic, affective, perceptual, or philosophical-can only be explained fully with respect to bodily experience. This imaginative book is challenging, provocative, thoroughly argued, and sparkling with interdisciplinarity. Charles Hiroshi Garrett Associate Professor, Musicology, University of Michigan, USA and editor of the Grove Dictionary of American Music , 2nd ed. Tiger C. Roholt's energetic new study of a neglected but undeniably central aspect of rhythm represents a major step forward in understanding how and why music moves us as it does. Roholt writes both as a philosopher and as a player, which readers will quickly see is a great advantage on this topic, and he knows the value of examples, many of which are thoroughly absorbing in their own right. Roholt describes the motor-intentional process that actualizes the implicit groove of a song, giving us a new appreciation of the embodied character of this kind of aesthetic experience and the 'groove-completing' role of the listener. A wonderfully interesting study. Garry L. Hagberg, James H. Ottaway Jr. Professor of Philosophy and Aesthetics, Bard College. USA It's a slim volume but an academic one, a punctiliously annotated and referenced study that requires and rewards careful reading. ... Groove remains an interesting, pithy examination of how (and why) we ultimately respond to music. -- Frank Valish Under the Radar Tiger C. Roholt's Groove: a phenomenology of rhythmic nuance is a splendid, rigorous, and brief (140 pp) book that makes a compelling case for something many musicians already know something about: groove. -- Thomas Brett brettworks
