Harold Beckett 1935-2010

LondonJazz has announced the death of trumpet player Harry Beckett. A regular visitor to the North East over the years he was a much loved figure. He died today after a stroke on Tuesday. Truly a pivotal player in contemporary UK jazz.
In the picture on the left Harry was with Dudu Pukwana at a Corner House gig back in the 1980's. Other nights included concerts with Barbara Thompson and other forward thinkers of the time. Even as recently as this year there was talk of a Tyneside gig.
Sadly, not to be.
RIP Harold Beckett.
Lance.
