Identify the Professors.


I have followed your blog for some time now. It's quite interesting for someone like me who is interested in the jazz scene in UK in the 1960s. Anyway, I came across a photo of Pete Deuchar's Professors of Ragtime, probably from 1959 or 1960, and I wonder whether you or someone on the blog would be able to identify the musicians on that picture.
I hope you can help! 
Johann Haidenbauer.
David  'Dave' Evans (drums) and 'Chez' Graham Robertson Chesterman (trumpet) are also sometimes mentioned as having been in the Professors of Ragtime.
However, I don't know how they look like - and therefore cannot tell whether they are on this picture.

Finally, there is a live recording of Pete Deuchar from the Antibes 1963 festival which one can listen to and/or download - in case you or others on Bebop Spoken Here are interested in this!

Could that be John Saxelby with the clarinet?

Definitely John Saxelby. Pete Deuchar in the centre. But who are the other three? The guitarist on the left of the picture is still a well-known figure today.

A young John McLaughlin, guitar (left); behind him is Norman 'Nobby' Burn, drums; right of pic holding Pete's guitar is pianist, John Clarke along with John Saxelby, clarinet

Submissions for review

Whilst we appreciate the many emails, texts, messages and other communications we receive requesting album/gig reviews on BSH, regrettably, we are unable to reply to them all other than those we are able to answer with a positive response.
Similarly, CDs received by post will only be considered if accompanied by sufficient background material.
Finally, bear in mind that this is a jazz-based site when submitting your album.

About this blog - contact details.

Bebop Spoken Here -- Here, being the north-east of England -- centred in the blues heartland of Newcastle and reaching down to the Tees Delta and looking upwards to the Land of the Kilt.
Not a very original title, I know; not even an accurate one as my taste, whilst centred around the music of Bird and Diz, extends in many directions and I listen to everything from King Oliver to Chick Corea and beyond. Not forgetting the Great American Songbook the contents of which has provided the inspiration for much great jazz and quality popular singing for round about a century.
The idea of this blog is for you to share your thoughts and pass on your comments on discs, gigs, jazz - music in general. If you've been to a gig/concert or heard a CD that knocked you sideways please share your views with us. Tell us about your favourites, your memories, your dislikes.
