Esquire Jazz @ The Porthole

Miles Watson sent me this cartoon of the original Jazz Esquires at The Porthole, North Shields.
Sketched by an unknown artist the musicians are Hughie Aitchison (tpt); Munro Sutherland (clt); Lenny Sampson (tmb); Eric Gamblin (gtr); Derek Dixon (bs); Mick Yorke (dms) Bob ? (pno). It's Bob the Pianist who is the problem name-wise. Can anyone recall his surname or, come to that, who was the artist?

HI Lance,
The piano player is Bob Colesome (If that is the right spelling) he did play very often at The Wheatsheaf jam sessions in the 1970's on a Thursday, also was with the Royal Observer Corps, nice piano player, and wonder what ever happened to him....
