About the Book

Ten Thousand and One Nights is the musical autobiography of “Chicago” Carl Snyder, who went to the Windy City in 1966 to write for Playboy Magazine and ended up playing keyboards on the road and in the studio with many of the world’s greatest blues artists. Carl played in forty-six states and eleven foreign countries, in Roman castles and Mississippi roadhouses; he has appeared on almost fifty albums, including two that won the Handy Award. Told in a quick-moving, anecdotal style, the book is replete with adventure and humor. And it presents a cross-section of American life and culture over the past fifty years, with cameo appearances by well-known actors, musicians, politicians, and athletes, plus other characters who are less famous but extremely colorful.
