9780857867742: Crosstown Traffic: Jimi Hendrix and Post-war Pop

Jimi Hendrix 'transgressed many boundaries; both arbitrary musical definitions separating blues and soul or jazz and rock, and also those fundamental divides between the archaic and the avant-garde, between individualist and collectivist philosophies,between blacks and whites, between America and Britain, between passive acquiescence and furious resistance,between lust for life and obsession with death.' Charles Shaar Murray

Crosstown Traffic charts the routes Hendrix took to arrive at his 'unique musical formulation'. The result is a bravura study of his art and life that has become established as the definitive work on 'the most eloquent instrumentalist ever to work in rock.'

Winner of the Ralph Gleason Music Book Award on first publication, this brilliant and ambitious book, hailed as 'the most compelling and literate essay on rock since Greil Marcus' Mystery Train, is being reissued with an updated introduction.

Book Description:

The best and most ambitious book about Jimi Hendrix, being reissued with a revised introduction on the 70th anniversary of Hendrix's birth.

About the Author:

Charles Shaar Murray is an award-winning author, journalist, musician and cultural infidel: 'the rock critic's rock critic' (Q Magazine), 'front-line cultural warrior' and 'original gunslinger' (Independent on Sunday). He first appeared in print in 1970 in the notorious 'Schoolkids' issue of OZ magazine. By 1972he was working for NME, subsequently becoming Associate Editor. Crosstown Traffic, his acclaimed study of Jimi Hendrix, won the prestigious Ralph J. Gleason Music Book Award in 1990: a decade later, Boogie Man was shortlisted for the same award. The first two decades of 'his journalism, criticism and vulgar abuse', to use his own description, were collected in Shots from the Hip. In 2010 he received a Record Of The Day for his contributions to music journalism and a novel, The Hellhound Sample, appeared in 2011. He is currently at work on a 'somewhat unconventional' book about The Clash.

Descrizione libro Canongate Books Ltd. Paperback. Condizione libro: new. BRAND NEW, Crosstown Traffic: Jimi Hendrix and Post-war Pop, Charles Shaar Murray, Charles Shaar Murray once asked B.B. King if he considered Jimi Hendrix to be a bluesman. 'I consider him to be a musician, a great, great musician.' And Charles Shaar Murray has written the book that does justice to that accolade. It is more than a biography. Much more. The salient facts of Hendrix's life are summarized but the book's purpose is altogether of a higher order. Through a succession of wide-ranging, richly informed chapters the author describes Hendrix's very individual journey 'to the other side of town.' As Charles Shaar Murray says, Hendrix 'transgressed many boundaries; both arbitrary musical definitions separating blues and soul or jazz and rock, and also those fundamental divides between the archaic and the avant-garde, between individualist and collectivist philosophies, between blacks and whites, between America and Britain, between passive acquiescence and furious resistance, between lust for life and obsession with death.' 'Hendrix was Hendrix' it has been said. Charles Shaar Murray demonstrates the truth of this, compellingly elucidating the 'unique musical formulation' that was Hendrix's art. Winner of the Ralph Gleason Music Book Award on first publication this ambitious and brilliant book, hailed as 'the most compelling and literate essay on rock since Greil Marcus' 1975 Mystery Train', is being reissued with a new introduction to coincide with the 70th anniversary of Hendrix's birth.
