Chronicles of King Curtis is an historical account of the life and times of the greatest saxophone player in rock and roll. King Curtis was a musical renaissance man: a multiple-saxophonist, performer, composer, arranger, producer, band leader for himself and Aretha Franklin, session man, talent scout, publisher, vocalist, guitarist and businessman. His impact on saxophonists was colossal. His style was riveting, his tone rich, his playing passionate. His versatility extended to jazz, blues, funk, R&B, soul, country, spirituals and pop. A master craftsman who blew a funnel of funk like the world never heard, his volcanic streams of sound created a whirlwind. He mentored musicians yet fastidiously studied melody, harmony, and theory. He was on a spiritual quest while simultaneously trapped in a material world. He tapped into a reservoir of soul and blew his top. This book for the first time presents an overview of this incredible musician.
