Bebop Spoken There

Alan Barnes: "Normally you can cobble a set together with five guys on the back of an envelope over the first pint and it's just fine. Livestreaming isn't like that." - (Jazzwise July 2021)

Panama

Our man in Hong Kong, Colin Aitchison, has taken time off from 'knocking 'em dead' at Ned Kelly's Last Stand to send some photos of the 1981 re-creation of the Panama Jazzmen. Pictured in the photo on the left are Stan Martin (clt), Marshall Walker (dms), Dave Hedley (vcl), Joe Errington (tpt), Norman Rudd (pno) & Gordon Solomon (tmb). Click here for more photos including a youthful(ish) Roly Veitch, Clem Avery, Joe McMullen, Ray Jobling, Billy Calboutin, Eric Gamblin, Ray Chester, Uncle Tom Cobbly...
The music stands proclaim them to be the Panama Jazzmen but the faces/names in this picture are more related to the River City Jazzmen of the day - perhaps it was a double header?
Lance.
PS: Colin also sent me a photo of his father Hughie playing at High Farm Club, Wallsend in 1980. Barry Phillips is on piano and Joe Garner on bass. Colin would like to identify the tenor player and the drummer. Can anyone help? Click here to view.
PPS: Latest YouTube video from the China Coast Jazzmen. It may be only "The Saints" but it is worth it for the very last note!
