NZ Biography & Memoirs | Secondhand

The inside story from one of our true music legends - pianist, teacher, arranger and bandleader, Doug Caldwell MNZM. In My Life In The Key Of Jazz, Doug provides a fascinating and entertaining journey through the world he knows so well - a place of high-browed auditoriums, and low and smoky late-night jazz clubs, a world of eccentric punters, fans and the musicians who made it their own. Through more than 65 years of professional performance Doug has worked with a veritable who's who of acclaimed musicians and entertainers including: Henry Mancini, Mavis Rivers, Wild Bill Davison, Ronnie Scott, Sir Harry Secombe, Georgie Fame, Al Cohn, Cal Collins, Scott Hamilton and Don Rader, together with a wealth of New Zealand greats.
