Autobiography of a Travelling Musician

by Martin Taylor MBE and David Mead

According to Chet Atkins, Martin Taylor is one of the best guitarists in the world, yet he was entirely self-taught. He picked up his first guitar at the age of four, was playing village dances in his dad's jazz band at age 12, and, just four years later, was supporting the great Count Basie and his Orchestra. In the book, Taylor tells his entire life story to present, from the early days to his decade-long partnership with legendary violinist Stephane Grappelli to his continually acclaimed solo work. It's a story at once moving, funny, engaging and insightful.
