Kerouac's Miles: Jack Kerouac and the Music of Miles Davis

Coventry, England: The Beat Scene Press, 2021. Limited First Edition. Stapled Wrappers. A fascinating, well-researched scholarly essay by Mike Andrews that focuses on the parallel lives & works of respective American literary & musical giants Jack Kerouac & Miles Davis. Direct references to Davis & Co. (esp. Charlie Parker) live & on record in Kerouac's works are noted, & there is a general thread of comparing their separate lives at identical periods. With relevant Davis discography, bibliography of consulted books following text; capsule biographies of Davis & Kerouac on flaps. A significant contribution to this critical aspect of the Beat Generation & especially Kerouac- its & his entwinement with Bop Jazz innovation. Chapbook in stapled wrappers with flaps, another beautiful production, the latest as of this writing, issued as No. 72 in the Beat Scene Press Pocket Book series published by Kevin Ring in the UK (see our many issues of the indispensable Beat Scene journal, as well as the many numbers in this series still available, esp. No. 3518- Jim Burns' "Kerouac and Jazz"). One of an edition of 150 copies published during May 2021, this is copy No. 37/150 hand-numbered at colophon. An important & exclusive Kerouac-related collectible; another instant rarity in this most impressive series. In very fine, as-new condition with only a few very short, faint creases at spine & right edge of back cover. Very Fine. [Item #4455]
