Short Take: Soul Train – Questlove

This is a love letter to the longest running TV program in syndication, a program that launched the careers of Ike and Tina Turner, Michael Jackson, Stevie Wonder, Elton John, David Bowie, Whitney Houston, Aretha Franklin, LL Cool J, Lenny Kravitz, the Beastie Boys, Marvin Gaye, Mariah Carey, and many others. With over 350 full color photos and an intro by Gladys Knight and forward by Nick Cannon, it’s a great coffee table book. And it’s by Questlove–DJ, music journalist, record producer, and frontman of The Roots, the in-house band for Late Night with Jimmy Fallon.
