Goodbye...

Below (l-r): Paul Gamblin, Billy Calboutin (drummer in photo).
Six good men were lost to the north-east jazz world in 2010. Jacky Denton, Mike Gilby, Stan Martin, Ernie Graham, Paul Gamblin and Billy Calboutin. Unfortunately this is the only photo I have of Billy Calboutin who was a fine drummer. Paradoxically, the guitarist at the front of the photo is the late Eric Gamblin - father of Paul Gamblin pictured in the photo to the left whilst the bass player is Ray Jobling - featured on the previous post with the Bernicia Jazzband!. There will be others whom I have inadvertantly missed out for which I apologise.
Also national and international figures such as John Dankworth, Martin Drew, Jack Parnell, Herb Ellis, Hank Jones, James Moody, Lena Horne etc are covered in the various jazz magazines - they are no less missed.
Lance.
