9780864736369: Serious Fun: The Life and Music of Mike Nock

Vibrant and compelling, this jazz biography plots the life of one of New Zealand’s greatest musicians: Mike Nock. From Nock’s childhood in Ngaruawahia and Nelson in the 1940s and his teenage adventures on the road with the Fabulous Flamingoes to his gigs with music legends including John Handy, Yusef Lateef, and Dionne Warwick and his founding of the pioneering fusion band the Fourth Way, this account not only tells the story of a volatile and creative man, but also highlights Nock’s stellar international career. Containing an analysis of the pianist's compositions and recordings as well as an accompanying DVD, this chronicle offers rich insights for musicians and fans alike.
