I Remember You

Today, June 6, marks the 11th anniversary of the death of my dear friend Charlie Carmichael. Charlie blew up a storm on tenor, flute and clarinet. In fact, he was one of the very few modern clarinet players around locally and, after Vic Ash, there weren't many nationally either. He had total command of his instrument; a testament to the many practice hours he put in.
I sat alongside him in the Newcastle Big Band with whom we made two wild trips to the San Sebastion Jazz Festival back in the 1970s.
He also demonstrated his versatility by playing dixieland with the Ronnie Young Band and doing a single act around the working men's clubs.
Sadly missed.
