Roderick Conway Morris penned a comprehensive review of the early development and interrelationship of the café aman and rebetika urban musical forms in "Greek Café Music." His detailed exposition on the development of such components as social context, instrumentation, musical composition and performance styles, accompanying dances and dancers, song themes, and commercial recordings takes us from origins in Asia Minor to elaborations in America. Of particular interest is his attention to café aman, about which relatively little has been written.
