R.I.P. Eddie Harvey.

The sad news that I've belatedly received is of the death of trombonist, pianist, composer, arranger, educator Eddie Harvey. My memories go back to hearing him with the Dankworth Seven at Newcastle City Hall back in the early fifties - one of the first jazz concerts I ever attended. I later heard him with Woody Herman's Anglo-American Herd at the Royal Festival Hall in 1959 and later once or twice with Humph. An impeccable player, in later years I had to be content with reading interviews in magazines. His reputation as a teacher was second to none.
Sadly missed.
Eddie Harvey died October 9 aged 86.
Obituary.

Eddie was an inspiration. still riding his bike, conquering the latest version of Sibelius and gigging into his 80s! He was always happy to talk over ideas, answer questions - I owe him a great deal.Weirdly I was reading his book 'Teach Yourself Jazz Piano' when I found out. RIP Eddie

Hi Lance,
Sad news about Eddie Harvey, I think we were both with the Newcastle Big Band, when he came and rehearsed the band, here is a photo from 1950, must have been the Johnny Dankworth Seven with L-R Johnny Dankworth, Jimmy Deuchar, Eddie Harvey & Don Rendell.
