Considered a supreme artist on the vibraphone, marimba and xylophone, as well as a master of his world-famous collection of percussion instruments, Richards is renowned throughout the world for his versatility. This audiobook´s lifetime of insightful and hilarious experiences include years with Frank Sinatra and George Harrison, as well as many anecdotes involving Burt Bacharach, Elvis Presley and Ravi Shankar, as well as most major recording artists. Richards´ chronology roughly categories the audiobook´s chapters into decades, with the 1960´s mainly involving album recording, television shows in the ´70s, and films in the ´80s and ´90s. A parallel career means stories emanating through playing with George Shearing, Paul Horn, Stan Kenton and Roger Kellaway, as well as Igor Stravinsky and Richards´ own group Calamari. There are warm recollections of the great film composers, including Henry Mancini, Alex North, Jerry Goldsmith and John Williams, who all collaborated at finding a unique sound at Richards´ warehouse before composing. Salad bowls used in Planet Of The Apes, gongs lowered into fluid for space movies and many other unusual sonic effects will flash listeners back to decades of favorite movies. From an astonishing family history and grim days growing up in Hartford, Connecticut, through wild tours with Sinatra to Europe, Japan and Egypt, and visits to the Maharishi in India, Richards´ entertaining, direct style perfectly complements this wealth of inside experiences. 1.
