Foreword by

Description by OLDIES.com:

He was the embodiment of Motown spirit and groove - the invisible entity whose bass playing inspired thousands of imitators, and made it impossible for anyone with a pulse to sit still whenever a Motown record was playing. His talent appeared to be limitless. But running parallel with his creative fires was an uncontrollable inner rage that would eventually deplete his talents and bring about his heartbreaking demise. Now for the first time in print, James Jamerson's tumultuous life and musical brilliance are explored in depth through hundreds of interviews, forty-nine transcribed musical scores, two hours of recorded all-star performances, and more than fifty rarely seen photographs.
