Review:

Travel Books Worth a Look For some people, music and travel go hand in hand. This book is written for them. It features a dozen writers who were sent to a dozen countries. Their assignment: describe the music -- 'the coolest genres' -- around the world. That includes Celtic punk in Dublin, Muslim hip-hop in Paris, Indipop in Mumbai and techno in Berlin. Some genres are definitely a huge departure from mainstream tastes. Ethiopop in Ethiopia, for example, draws from spiritual music, jazz, hip-hop and funk with a particular fondness for synthesizers and Stevie Wonder-like riffs, while Argentina's rhythmic sounds of cumbia, with its global dance music, has emerged from its folk roots to give the tango a run for its money. But more traditional types of music are also here. Peter Margasak, staff writer for the Chicago Reader, for example, devotes a chapter to Chicago jazz. Each chapter features sections on what the editors call 'hometown heroes,' as well as brief descriptions of influential albums associated with each type of music. -- June Sawyers 11/15/2009 --The Chicago Tribune

Miles of Music Graphics that pop, plenty of maps and a breezy tone make the new 'Music + Travel' guidebook a handy reference and a rockin' good time. Twelve writers profile 12 countries, offering the inside scoop on the best music venues in, among other sites, Dublin, Ireland; Buenos Aires; Paris; Berlin; and Chicago. Jessica Hundleys chapter on Southern California touches on such figures as Merle Haggard and Gram Parsons. She writes: 'Calicountry, the dust-blown cowboy strut that began with the Okie folk songs of the Dust Bowl emigres, continues to hang over Los Angeles like campfire smoke.' That may be overstating things, but there's little doubt you'll want to read on. -- Chris Erskine 10/18/2009 --The Los Angeles Times
