Memories are Made of This

Hi Lance, just caught the blog and saw photo of my old mate Dennis Healey on drums. He was a tremendous time keeper--so important for all the Shearing arrangements, but his Idol was Buddy Rich. I believe that I am the only one left from the band at 'La Dolce Vita', as Dennis, Ken Morrell, Derek Dixon, and Art Mowat are all gone--not sure about Bob Stephenson. Ah the memories!! Anne De Vere

Hi Lance

Tyne Bridge Publishing (an imprint of Newcastle Libraries publishing arm) has recently published a book
looking at life in Newcastle in the 1960s. 'It's My Life!' surveys popular culture at the time. It has some jazz (and blues) interest including a facsimile of a poster advertising Billy Eckstine at La Dolce Vita. The small print lists 'Dancing to the Bob Stephenson Sextet'. There is an excellent photograph of the Basie Band on stage at Newcastle City Hall and one of the Alan Price Combo featuring Nigel Stanger. The book, a paperback, is available from Newcastle Libraries priced £10.00. (ISBN: 978 185795 138 7). Incidentally, in the photograph taken at the Corner House, who's that standing behind Willie Payne?
