R.I.P. Richard Turner.

I've just learned from LondonJazz of the death of young trumpet star Richard Turner. Although I never actually heard him play I knew of him and the company he moved in - Julian Siegel, Gwilym Simcock, Kit Downes to name but three. His reputation was growing rapidly and he looked to be destined for great things.
Very sad.
Lance.

Just so you know, Richard was a fantastic trumpet player and a great explorer of the music. He was destined for great things(he was already doing great things. He was also a lovely lovely person and extremely popular amongst his peers as he worked tirelessly and selflessly to keep his club going and will be terribly missed by many people.
