Goodbye Mike Gilby

I've just received the sad news that Mike Gilby (pictured left) passed away peacefully this morning after a long illness. His family were at his bedside. Mike will be missed by all of the jazz and big band fraternity on Tyneside and far beyond.
Our thoughts are with the family.
Funeral details will be posted when known.
