Smile, You're Traveling: Black Coffee Blues Part 3

Henry Rollins

Smile, You're Traveling: Black Coffee Blues Part 3 by Henry RollinsSmile, You're Traveling is the third installment in the Black Coffee Blues series of books (which include Black Coffee Blues and Do I Come Here Often?). This time around Rollins reports from show tours and frequent flier financed travel during 1997 and 1998. Whether being terrified by roving gangs of baboons in Kenya or haggling with immigration officials over visa charges in Madagascar, Rollins finds a way to make his unique experiences universal. Says our weather beaten scribe of his journeys, "Some of it was cool, some of it was a pain in the ass, or maybe that was just me."

The Speed of Sound: Breaking the Barriers Between Music and Technology: A Memoir

Thomas Dolby

The Speed of Sound: Breaking the Barriers Between Music and Technology: A Memoir by Thomas Dolby

The remarkable story of rising to the top of the music charts, a second act as a tech pioneer, and the sustaining power of creativity and art.

Thomas Dolby's hit songs "She Blinded Me with Science" and "Hyperactive!" catapulted him to international fame in the early 80's. A pioneer of New Wave and Electronica, Thomas combined a love for invention with a passion for music, and the result was a new sound that defined an era of revolutionary music. But as record company politics overshadow the joy of performing, Thomas finds a surprising second act.

Starting out in a rat-infested London bedsit, a...

Drummer, record producer, bandleader, jazz researcher, and cigar-chomping raconteur Barry Martyn is a New Orleans original who happens to have been born in England. Implausible though this may seem, it makes perfect sense to members of the New Orleans traditional jazz community, who view themselves as an extended family based on merit as much as nativity. For more than forty years, Martyn has been a fixture in the Crescent City's jazz scene, laying down the beat for generations of celebrated musicians and avidly promoting the city's unique musical heritage around the world.

Homeward Bound: The Life of Paul Simon

Peter Ames Carlin

Homeward Bound: The Life of Paul Simon by Peter Ames Carlin

A revelatory account of the life of beloved American music icon, Paul Simon, by the bestselling rock biographer Peter Ames Carlin

To have been alive during the last sixty years is to have lived with the music of Paul Simon. The boy from Queens scored his first hit record in 1957, just months after Elvis Presley ignited the rock era. As the songwriting half of Simon & Garfunkel, his work helped define the youth movement of the '60s. On his own in the '70s, Simon made radio-dominating hits. He kicked off the '80s by reuniting with Garfunkel to perform for half a million New Yorkers in Central Park....

Traveling Soul: The Life of Curtis Mayfield

Todd Mayfield & Travis Atria

Traveling Soul: The Life of Curtis Mayfield by Todd Mayfield & Travis AtriaCurtis Mayfield was one of the seminal vocalists and most talented guitarists of his era, and his music played a vital role in the civil rights movement: "People Get Ready" was the black anthem of the time. In Traveling Soul, Todd Mayfield tells his famously private father's story in riveting detail. Born into dire poverty, raised in the slums of Chicago, Curtis became a musical prodigy, not only singing like a dream but growing into a brilliant songwriter. In the 1960s he opened his own label and production company and worked with many other top artists, including the Staple Singers. Curtis's...

Moscow Nights: The Van Cliburn Story-How One Man and His Piano Transformed the Cold War

Moscow Nights: The Van Cliburn Story-How One Man and His Piano Transformed the Cold War by Nigel Cliff

Gripping narrative nonfiction that tells the dramatic story of a remarkable young Texan pianist, Van Cliburn, who played his way through the wall of fear built by the Cold War, won the hearts of the American and Russian people, and eased tensions between two superpowers on the brink of nuclear war.

In 1958, an unheralded twenty-three-year-old piano prodigy from Texas named Van Cliburn traveled to Moscow to compete in the First International Tchaikovsky Competition. The Soviets had no intention of bestowing their coveted prize on an unknown American; a Russian pianist had already been chosen to...

Michael Bloomfield: The Rise and Fall of an American Guitar Hero

Ed Ward & Billy Gibbons

Michael Bloomfield: The Rise and Fall of an American Guitar Hero by Ed Ward & Billy GibbonsThis is the definitive biography of the legendary guitarist whom Muddy Waters and B. B. King held in high esteem and who created the prototype for Clapton, Hendrix, Page, and those who followed.

He then founded the Electric Flag, recorded Super Session with Al Kooper, backed Janis Joplin, and released at least twenty other albums despite debilitating...

THE ABC of 1-2-3: The True Story

Billy Ritchie

THE ABC of 1-2-3: The True Story by Billy Ritchie

1-2-3 are now acknowledged as having a major influence on what became of music in the 1970s. Yet the band disappeared without trace in history, only to surface decades later, in circumstances that Mojo Magazine described as "Archaeology". The man behind it all, Billy Ritchie, somehow vanished from the radar, and from the music business completely, going out with a bang, refusing interviews or contact with anything to do with it - Until now.

In typically forthright fashion, he tells his true story, without fear or favour, naming names and shaming those who took his legacy, but also giving credit...

Glinka

M. Montagu Nathan

Glinka by M. Montagu NathanOriginally published in 1917. This early works is a fascinating look at the life work of Glinka and still an interesting read today.
