Résumé

Wellington pianist and trumpet player Kevin Clark is one of New Zealand's top concert and recording jazz musicians, who in the past 60 years has also played many gigs as a dance band and nightclub musician. He was a student and tutor at the Massey University Conservatorium of Music. He describes many of his experiences, polite and not so polite, and at the same time chronicles cultural shifts in Kiwi social history including the end of the six o'clock swill, the rise and fall of booze barns and dine & dance, and the decline of community hall 'socials' complete with beer kegs, plates of savs and raffle draws"--Back cover.
