RIP Tony Raine

Just before Beryl Bryden died in July 1998 she came to Ashington Jazz Club (not to sing) but with her pianist Tony Raine (real name Ramm?). He was a non-reader but could put a jazz style to any tune. Tony was from Newbiggin and has been in a care home there for quite a while. He has now passed away. He was a great character and played piano in some of the London gangland clubs in the 60s. He was reputed to have had Louis Armstrong's gold ring. The funeral takes place on Wednesday and I intend to go to represent the jazz community.
John T.
