American Library Association names NJIT prof’s Whale Music book a top ten
Date:12/10/2008

Thousand Mile Song: Whale Music in a Sea of Sound (Basic Books, 2008) by NJIT humanities professor, author and clarinetist David Rothenberg, has been named one of the ten best science and technology books for 2008 by Booklist on Line, a publication of the American Library Association. http://www.booklistonline.com/default.aspx?page=show_product&pid=3170993

To research the book and learn about whale music, Rothenberg traveled from Hawaii to Russia to play his bass clarinet while playing and recording interspecies duets with the melodic mammals. The corollary compact disc Whale Music featuring the sounds of beluga, killer and humpback whales can be heard at http://cdbaby.com/cd/davidrothenberg2 , iTunes or www.thousandmilesong.com. The musical tract includes a never-before-recorded Pete Seeger song, "The World's Last Whale." The CD also won 2008 best cover design from All About Jazz NY Magazine.

(ATTENTION EDITORS: Rothenberg is available to discuss with zeal his music or recording sessions. Call Sheryl Weinstein, 973-596-3436 for interviews.)

Creature lovers may recall that Rothenberg authored the bestselling Why Birds Sing (Basic Books) in 2005. Booklist is a 100-year-old journal, published by the American Library Association, whose core mission is to provide public and school librarians with reviews that help them decide what to buy. In recent years, Booklist has also become a valuable tool that helps librarians make reading recommendations.

Rothenberg's previous recordings include On the Cliffs of the Heart (New Tone Records, 1995) featuring percussionist Glen Velez and banjo player Graeme Boone. The work, praised by composer John Cage, was named a top ten release of 1995 by Jazziz.
