RIP Danny Moss - RIP Campbell Burnap

I learned today of the deaths of two well known British musicians. DANNY MOSS (pictured left) was an outstanding tenor player with a big sound reminiscent of Ike Quebec. I first heard him with the Dankworth Band of the early 60s at Newcastle City Hall and his tone stood out against the paper thin sound of some of his contemporaries. He spent a period with Humph and later received an MBE although probably not for playing in Humph's band.
In 1964 he married singer Jeannie Lambe and I recall seeing them at a memorable Corner House session in 1981. The couple later moved to Austrailia where he died 0n 29 May 2008 aged 80.
I thought I'd never actually heard CAMPBELL BURNAP live until Chris Yates reminded me that the trombone player had been at the Corner House with Pat Halcox (see photo right) in the 1980s depping for Roy Williams. His playing graced many other traditional bands including Alan Elsdon, Alex Welsh, Acker Bilk and the Midnite Follies Orchestra. I remember him most for his work as a broadcaster; particularly on THEJAZZ. Indeed, his Sunday evening program was one of the highlights of that late lamented station. His choice of music was impeccable and for me at least; very listenable.
Pancreatic Cancer got him on 30 May 2008 aged 68.


May they both rest in peace

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.
