George Russell R.I.P.

One of the most imaginative and, at times controversial, composers and arrangers, George Russell died aged 86 on July 27. Click here for Guardian Obit. Thanks to LondonJazz for bringing the news to my notice. Always worth checking LJ out for a view of the bigger picture. Lance.

Hi Lance

George Russell appeared three times in Newcastle - 1986, 1988 & 1994. The bands had an amazing roster of top-flight players.
