Bebop Spoken There

Gil Goldstein: "The first three days I was in Florida, I heard Jaco Pastorius play at a club in Fort Lauderdale, and then I heard Pat [Metheny] play in a class on jazz composition. My whole experience of the world changed in those three days." - (DownBeat, March 2020).

Derek Wadsworth - Remembered by Laurie Brown

I was sorry to read of the death of Derek Wadsworth in your obituary column. He did indeed work with the Squads during my time with the band. I lost contact all those years ago but his wife Betty and son stayed with Joyce and I some time later. I remember a wry Yorkshire sense of humour along with his great playing!

Thanks Laurie. I note he had other local connections...
" ...and had a particularly close working relationship with Alan Price, for whom he arranged the album Between Today And Yesterday (1974). This contained The Jarrow Song, a brilliant marriage of pop and brass-band idioms."
