An Ian Carr Memory From Jack Goodwin

Around 1953, I was playing with Clem Avery’s band and we had a regular gig each week at the Student’s Union (aka “The Bun Room”) at what was then, King’s College, Newcastle. A young student asked to sit in on trumpet a couple of times, but quite frankly, he wasn’t too good and he wasn’t encouraged to ask again. His name was Ian Carr and little did we know how he was to develop. I saw him again in 1969 at a concert in Newcastle playing with the Rendell-Carr Quintet and took a few pictures of them on stage, one of which I’ve enclosed. His technique and improvising ability was much improved.

One of the best photos of the RCQ in action I've seen. If Jack were willing to permit this photo to be place on Ian's website I would be most grateful if he could contact me at:

Many thanks

Thats very amusing to read about Ian Carr not being a very good trumpet player aound 1953! Probably
a year or so earlier I was having a
"jam" session with brother Mike in
their Gosforth house when in walked
Ian with a trumpet he had just bought. I seem to remember him trying to get a note out of it without much success. How time changed eh!

There was a tribute to Ian Carr on radio 4 this afternoon, about 4pm.
