Ronnie Scott tells here of his life as a musician and bandleader and as the founder, with his partner Pete King, of the great jazz club that bears his name. The book provides a humorous and shrewd behind-the-scenes account of the headaches and hysteria of running a club in the heart of London's Soho and coping with the capricious temperaments of some of the world's most celebrated jazz artists. The book is co-authored by Mike Hennessey, one of Europe's leading jazz writers. This edition features a new foreword by Pete King. Ronnie Scott died in 1996 but his Club survives as a testament to the vision and determination of Scott and Pete King. The book includes contributions by Benny Green and Spike Milligan, and cartoons by Mel Calman.
