Abstract:

"He was the king of the Beat Generation and the most dynamic novelist of his time, but Jack Kerouac had a lifelong passion for music, particularly the mid-century jazz of New York City. The novelist, most famous for his 1957 book On the Road, admired the sounds of bebop and attempted to bring something of their original energy to his own writing. Yet he was also drawn to American popular music of all kinds-from the blues to country, rock`n'roll to Broadway ballads-and when he came to record albums under his own name, he worked with some of the most talented musicians on the scene. Yet Kerouac's musical legacy goes beyond the recordings he made himself: both tribute albums to the man and soundtrack recordings accompanying movies that brought his writing to the big screen have also featured potent and original musical content. In Kerouac on Record, we consider the writer's own recorded output, those rock tributes that have kept his memory alive and the scores that have featured in a string of Hollywood adaptations of his fictional adventures."--Publisher's description.
