Taj Mahal Foxtrot - The Story of Bombay's Jazz Age (by Naresh Fernandes)

£10.00

Product description

Taj Mahal Foxtrot - The Story of Bombay's Jazz Age (by Naresh Fernandes). Publishers: Roli Books, 2012. Cover, in fully illustrated boards, is in decent condition with some bumping to spine and corners. Dust jacket is in decent condition with some markings and slight creasing but with no tearing. A six-track CD is included.
In 1935, a violinist from Minnesota named Leon Abbey brought the first 'all negro' jazz band to Bombay, leaving behind a legacy that would last three decades. In a decade, swing would find its way to the streets of India as it influenced Hindi film music - the very soundtrack of Indian life. Taj Mahal Foxtrot, at its heart, is a history of Bombay in swing time.
