Bebop Spoken There

George Shearing: "Speaking about Johann Sebastian Bach I think he'd be a real jazzer if he were alive today. I mean any man who has two wives, twenty kids, gets kicked out of the church for being too harmonically radical and drinks beer can't be all wrong can he?" - (Crescendo March 1984.)

What a great Pic...Tommy... I never had the pleasure of working with you... But I met you many times when you were manager at Julies... I think... Ron Studholme... what a guy...

Hi Mal...
Thanks for your comment on The Greys Club Band pic - as you probably remember I had hundreds of musicians visit Julies Club while I was manager from 1974 - 1990. It was a great place in those days...were you there the night 'Dire Straits' did a free 3 hour show for the customers? or when the whole Count Basie band turned up - knockout nights !
Did you know my old mate and drummer Ron Studholme well? as you say he was quite a character.
Hope you are doing well in London
Regards
Tommy Henderson

Hello Tommy. What memories this picture brings back, like when I forgot the cabaret artists name.
All seems like a lifetime ago.
Hope you are well.
