    This is the first time the history of the uniquely British 'Jazz Dance' scene has been documented in such depth, written over a period of 10 years by Mark Cotgrove, aka Snowboy, the noted bandleader, DJ, club promoter, journalist and Afro-Cuban percussionist. This amazing 300 page book contains over 200 interviews and documents the scene's fast-flying footsteps through its inception in the Jazz Funk movement of the 70's, through the underground Black British dance scene of the early 80's, on to the massive Acid Jazz phenomenon and beyond! This is a labour of love by Snowboy dedicated to the dancers, the DJs and the clubs all over the UK - like The Goldmine, Electric Ballroom, Berlin and The Wag - where Jazz Dance flourished and staked it's own place in the history of British Black Music club culture.
