Those who have seen George Melly on stage will know how outrageous and captivating he can be - the rouguish twinkle in the eye always spelling mischief - his erudition, his fame as an expert on Surrealism, his passion for angling, and his sexual appetite. This book gives an account of his last five years, on- and off-stage

Nach dem 'Rock Rough Guide' (BA 11/98) folgt nun der 'Jazz Rough Guide'. Der Hauptbestandteil dieses Jazz-Lexikons ist eine alphabetische Auflistung von Musikern und Bands in etwa 1700 Eintragungen. Auch hier dominieren natürlich Einträge von amerikanischen Musikern, doch ist der Anteil der Artikel über Nicht-Amerikaner, darunter viele deutsche Jazzmusiker, höher als bei vergleichbaren Lexika. Diskographen und inhaltliche Besprechungen weisen den Weg zu repräsentativen Aufnahmen. Im Anhang findet sich ein Glossar mit Fachbegriffen sowie Essays über Bewegungen und Stilrichtungen. Durchgängig finden sich in diesem Buch klassische Porträtaufnahmen und Abbildungen von Plattencovern. Ein umfassendes und aktuelles Lexikon, das u.a. von aktiven Jazzmusikern wie Ian Carr verfasst wurde und das vor J. Wölfer (BA 10/99) empfohlen wird. (2 A)
