GRAMMY NOMINEE

This unique, boundary pushing audiobook features original music by Questlove and members of The Roots with vocal guest appearances from Fred Armisen, Tariq Trotter, Dion Flynn, Robin Thede, "Suga" Steve Mandel, Norm MacDonald, Ludo Lefebvre, and Molly Kelly.

Questlove - musician, bandleader, designer, producer, culinary entrepreneur, professor, and all-around cultural omnivore - shares his wisdom on the topics of inspiration and originality in a one-of-a-kind guide to living your best creative life.

In Creative Quest, Questlove synthesizes all the creative philosophies, lessons, and stories he's heard from the many creators and collaborators in his life, and reflects on his own experience, to advise listeners and fans on how to consider creativity and where to find it. He addresses many topics - what it means to be creative, how to find a mentor and serve as an apprentice, the wisdom of maintaining a creative network, coping with critics and the foibles of success, and the specific pitfalls of contemporary culture - all in the service of guiding admirers who have followed his career and newcomers not yet acquainted with his story.

Whether discussing his own life or channeling the lessons he's learned from forefathers such as George Clinton, collaborators like D'Angelo, or like-minded artists including Ava DuVernay, David Byrne, Björk, and others, Questlove speaks with the candor and enthusiasm that fans have come to expect. Creative Questis many things - above all, a wise and wide-ranging conversation around the eternal mystery of creativity.

      • content: The founding member of The Roots, Questlove shares his insights about the creative process through a discussion of his own idiosyncratic methods, plus those he has learned from others. He takes his own advice and produces a quirky audiobook, which he delivers in a lively baritone voice. He doesn't hesitate to break into song, act a part, or, if the situation calls for it, pull out his cell phone and call a friend for the correct pronunciation of a name--while still recording. He even does what most audiobooks fail to do, include sound clips of the music or sounds he discusses. Both a solid guidebook on creativity and a memoir on Questlove, this audiobook is also a lot of fun. L.E. � AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine

        Questlove, music director for The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon and author of Mo’ Meta Blues, recounts his own musical journey in these spirited reflections on the elements of creativity. Questlove defines creativity as the “personality that makes it possible” to produce art; he discusses the creative process, the value of mentors, and the usefulness of collaboration. Questlove suggests that the best way to engage in the creative process is what he calls “micromeditation,” or taking a few seconds to pause and let one’s mind settle. When one has trouble thinking of new ideas, he recommends going back to an older idea and reworking it, similar to how George Clinton of Parliament Funkadelic incorporated the doo-wop sound of his early works into his albums of the 1970s. Questlove champions collaboration, reflecting on his own work with his Roots partner Tariq Trotter, and advises readers to be curious and open to ideas. Since creativity often grows when encountering the work of others, Questlove encourages artists to work with those who have different approaches, as he did with rapper and producer J Dilla and Talking Heads founder David Byrne, among others. Questlove’s generous, provocative guidebook offers experienced wisdom about tapping into the creative process.

        The drummer and co-founder of the Roots unpacks the creative process.Questlove's Mo' Meta Blues (2013) was an uncommonly incisive, reflective, and engaging musical memoir. If that was the author's masterpiece, this is more like the previously unreleased bonus cuts; it lacks the focus and cohesion of the earlier work, mixing the enlightening with the banal. "Early in this book," he writes in conclusion, "I also said that I don't know exactly what the goal of a book about creativity should be. My method has been to share stories from my life working on and around many different projects filled with many different ideas, and the goal of that method is to pass on some of that momentum to you." The author goes behind the scenes of the Tonight Show, where the Roots are the house band, describes the elation that he feels from receiving a good review and the deflation from a bad one (he seems more attuned to reviews than many other artists), and relates the experiences and influences that have impacted his musical development. Unlike Mo' Meta Blues, this book is presented and organized like a self-help book, one that doesn't offer readers much help. "We're going to need a definition of a creative person to go forward," he writes. "Here's a first stab at it: a creative person is a person who creates." The author moves beyond tautology in the most interesting part of the book, in which he explores how the internet has transformed our culture and the very notion of creativity, making us all curators, even of our own identities. "Our brains are changing," he writes. "They used to be containers. Now they're retrievers. It's a fundamental shift." Questlove is also interested in artists working across platforms and on chefs and food in general (see his previous book, somethingtofoodabout, for more information).More dross than expected but plenty of genuine gems of insight as well.
