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