Product Description

Review

‘David Bradbury’s volume authoritatively traces the Duke’s history and includes . . . many photographs, some unfamiliar. . . . A very worthy addition to Ducal literature.’ (Jim Godbolt Jazz at Ronnie Scott’s)

About the Author

A jazz fan since his schooldays, David Bradbury was able to talk to many musicians while he was based in New York as a British correspondent reporting on America. Now a freelance writer, he lives with his wife in North London. His book Now That's Funny! Writers on Writing Comedy, co-authored with Joe McGrath, was described as 'intelligent and enthusiastic' (Peter Bradshaw, Evening Standard) and 'a good laugh' (Arthur Smith, The Guardian).
