Description

This book tells a story of India, especially of the city of Bombay, through the lives of  menagerie of geniuses, strivers, and eccentrics, both Indian and American, who helped jazz find a home in the subcontinent.  They include the burly African- American pianist Teddy Weatherford; the Goan trumpet player Frank Fernand, whose epiphanic encounter with Mahatma Gandhi drove him to try to give jazz an Indian voice; Chic Chocolate, who was known as the Louis Armstrong of India; and Anthony Gonsalves, who lent his name to one of the most popular Bollywood tunes ever; and many more. Taj Mahal Foxtrot, at its heart, is a history of Bombay in swing time.
