Out of the Long Dark
The Life of Ian CarreBook - 2006
In this biography, Shipton examines the fascinating mix of ingredients that comprised the man and his music, and in the process draws a vivid picture of Carr?s home region, of National Service, of such literary influences as W. Somerset Maughan, of post-war continental Europe and its Bohemian arts scene, and of the London jazz world from the 1960s onwards. The book shows that jazz does not have to have an American accent to be original and innovative, and to inspire audiences around the world.
