Following, please find a list of books about music and music-related subjects in my collection. I have learned much from these books. This list is being constantly expanded, so please come back and check out the new additions.
|TAMARKIN, JEFF ~ GOT A REVOLUTION!: THE TURBULENT FLIGHT OF JEFFERSON AITPLANE|
|ATRIA ~ 978-0-671-03404-7 ~ 2003 ~ English|
|Rock / Biography / History & Criticism|
Although not the first and not the only book written about the seminal SF band Jefferson Airplane, Tamarkin´s work, written from a historic perspective, is probably the best of them all. Based on extensive interviews with the band´s members and well researched, the book presents a realistic picture of the band´s history, it´s ups and downs and its streak of genius. A most fascinating reading from cover to cover and a great document of the era.

|Jazz / Biography|
This is one of the first books to be published about John Coltrane and remains one of the best till this day. Basically a biography - it traces Coltrane´s life - it is also much more then just a biography - it tries to understand the analyse the psychology of the musical genius and his struggle to express his burning mind with the limitations intrinsic to usage of a musical instrument. Fascinating reading all through!
