Jazz Man : The Amazing Story of Ronnie Scott & His Club

This is an excellent book written by one of the UK's foremost writers on Ronnie Scott and the famous Jazz club in the UK. A must read for anyone interested in the UK jazz scene from the 1940's onwards. John has also written an excellent book on Jazz published by Dorling Kindersley which is now back in print.
