An Ian Carr Memory From Jack Goodwin

Around 1953, I was playing with Clem Avery’s band and we had a regular gig each week at the Student’s Union (aka “The Bun Room”) at what was then, King’s College, Newcastle. A young student asked to sit in on trumpet a couple of times, but quite frankly, he wasn’t too good and he wasn’t encouraged to ask again. His name was Ian Carr and little did we know how he was to develop. I saw him again in 1969 at a concert in Newcastle playing with the Rendell-Carr Quintet and took a few pictures of them on stage, one of which I’ve enclosed. His technique and improvising ability was much improved.

Thats very amusing to read about Ian Carr not being a very good trumpet player aound 1953! Probably
a year or so earlier I was having a
"jam" session with brother Mike in
their Gosforth house when in walked
Ian with a trumpet he had just bought. I seem to remember him trying to get a note out of it without much success. How time changed eh!

There was a tribute to Ian Carr on radio 4 this afternoon, about 4pm.

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.
