About this item

50s and 60s New York; a fine time and place for a musician to learn his craft. One such musician is JR, a founding member of The Jay Tones, an Italian American trio riding the wave and the excitement of the burgeoning demand for Rock n' Roll. With their youthful voices behind their first hit, ‘My Only Love' the boys soon become a magnet for the girls.
But this is New York and the music business can be merciless. JR navigates the group through the ups and downs of the industry not to mention the strict code of behaviour demanded by the Italian/American community.
In a book that will be a welcome addition to the libraries of music fans, George Colabella presents in Taking it from the Top a warm account of the journey JR took from the heady days of New York City as popular music began its unstoppable rise, through to the present day.
