Ian Carr Celebration

In conjunction with Serious Productions, I have arranged a celebration of Ian Carr's Life & Music for Tuesday Feb 23rd in the Queen Elizabeth Hall, London. It will be a fundraiser for Alzheimer's care. Besides the 4 surviving members of the Rendell-Carr Band and a revived Nucleus, I have managed to arrange a performance of Ian's own favourite "Northumbrian Sketches" featuring Guy Barker on trumpet and a 17 piece string orchestra. Does anyone have or know of pictures taken at its performance in 1986 (I think) at the Gateshead (Newcastle?) Festival? George Foster. ----- "A hat-tip for Lance Liddle's bebop spoken here blog which broke the news." - LondonJazz.
