The amazing story of Ahmet Ertegun – the driving force behind Atlantic Records, and a crucial figure in popular music in the 20th Century! Ahmet's story is the stuff of legend – and this book delivers the whole thing in stunning detail – from Ertegun's early years as the child of the Turkish ambassador, to his adolescent love of jazz and blues, to his launching Atlantic with his brother
– initially to dominate the field of rhythm and blues, then jazz and soul
, then even mainstream rock and roll! The hefty book is over 400 pages in length, and features a handful of black and white images too.
(There is a small remainder mark on the spine.)
