Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper.
Illustrated with colour photographs. From the cover: “From the flamenco guitarists in Seville to the Lebanese equivalent of the Spice Girls in Beirut, from fifties Cadillacs in Havana to riverside bars in Dublin, Jools Holland takes us on a grand tour of music, finding the beat in some of the most exciting cities in the world.
He meets their most celebrated musicians, listens to their music and jams with the best of them.
But Beat Route isn’t just about music. The life and soul of each city is revealed through Jools’ inimitable personality. In Chicago we see him flirting with a dating agency run from the back of a cab, while in Dublin he discusses Irish culture (and Riverdance) with Eamon Dunphy. Wherever he goes and whoever he talks to, Jools’ love of music and his unique rapport takes the reader on an unforgettable journey.”
