Abstract:

All great music has a birthplace. This book tells the stories of the legendary studios where musical genius and a magical space came together to capture some of the most exciting jazz, pop, funk, soul, and country records ever made. From the celebrated Southern studios of Sun and Stax, to the John Coltrane/Miles Davis sessions in producer Rudy Van Gelder's living room, to Frank Sinatra's swinging cuts at state-of-the-art Capitol Records, each of the 15 profiles in this book brings great music to life at the moment of its creation. With a trove of never-before-seen photographs and all-new interviews with the musicians and producers who made the records, this book is an inspiration for music fans.--From publisher description.
