Temples of Sound tours the greatest American recording studios where much of the 20th century's most important music was preserved for all time. Whether they were cramped or improvised spaces (an appliance shop's back room that was New Orleans' J&M, or the van Gelder studio, a suburban living room that produced legendary John Coltrane and Miles Davis records), or were state-of-the-art spaces from inception (Capitol) these are the studios that recorded the hits of the 20th century. Each chapter focuses on one studio, outlining the history of each in text and images. Readers get a tour of the studios and sessions that recorded hitmakers such as Aretha Franklin, Elvis Presley, Bob Dylan, Otis Redding, John Coltrane, and Miles Davis. The studio photographs capture the energy of the singers, musicians, producers, and engineers hard at work. With anecdotal contributions from the producers, engineers, and artists who made the signature sounds, and rarely seen photographs, Temples of Sound unlocks the secrets behind the places where classic music was born.About the Author:
