Draw a straight line from New Orleans to Nashville, then over to Memphis and back down to New Orleans via Highway 61, and you have the Mojo Triangle, a geometrical, cultural, and spiritual configuration that represents the birthplace of America’s original music: blues, jazz, rock & roll, and country. It is no coincidence that the same geographical territory that gave the world Elvis Presley, Howlin' Wolf, B. B. King and Tammy Wynette, also produced William Faulkner, Eudora Welty, and Tennessee Williams. Mojo Triangle traces the origins of the music that came out of New Orleans, the Mississippi Delta, Memphis, Muscle Shoals, and Nashville, and explains, often in the words of the artists themselves, the apocalyptic vision that gave birth to the music.

Highlights the most popular forms of American music, including blues, jazz, country, and rock ‘n’ roll. Ideal for those interested in both American history and music. Heavily illustrated with never-before-seen black and white archive photos.

Author James L. Dickerson was born and raised at the intersection of Highways 61 and 82, the heralded crossroads of "the blues" in the Mississippi Delta. That music was his inspiration and he’s become the dominant voice in the South on matters related to music, politics, and culture. With more than 18 non-fiction books under his belt, he’s written about everyone from Elvis Presley and Colonel Tom Parker to Ashley Judd to Faith Hill and Lil’ Hardin Armstrong.
