Michael Garrick’s Autobiography "Dusk Fire"

“It is not pretentious to describe him as the British Duke Ellington. “ (Steve Voce)

“Who else, apart from, say Maria Schneider and Mike Gibbs, consistently writes such fresh and uncliched big band music today?” (Roger Cotterell)

“Dusk Fire – Jazz in English Hands” the autobiography of Michael Garrick is available from the publisher Springdale Publishing, and will shortly be available via Amazon.

The book has a wealth of illustrations, including bassist Dave Green’s improbable seventies sideburns, and Norma Winstone dressing appropriately… for that decade.

We will be be publishing a review of this fundamentally honest book, which, as you might expect, ranges widely, with sudden, unexpected insights into the successes and regrets of Garrick’s career, and hundreds of wry observations about events, and colleagues.

Price is £15.00 plus £2.50 pp. Until an Amazon page -currently for “Dust Fire” (sic) – becomes properly live, the best way to get hold of a copy is to email tabannister@hotmail.co.uk and make a payment via Paypal. Or to send a cheque for £17.50 payable to Springdale Publishing to:
