Our Thoughts are With Dave Savill

Hi Lance, I enclose a copy of an email I have just received, which you may want to mention on the blog. You will remember Dave Savill as a trumpet player who came to San Sebastian with the Newcastle Big Band around 1970. A lovely guy who has lived for several years in the south Lakes and has played with me on and off for a long time. If anyone remembers him I'm sure he would appreciate their good wishes to the address shown.
Steve Andrews.

There are a lot of people who are still unaware that trumpet player Dave is seriously ill and in a hospice. . He's  in St Mary's Hospice, Ford Park, Ulverston, Cumbria, LA12 7JP. 
Although he gets very tired when visitors have called and it is not possible to visit him without phoning the hospice first, he would love to either read or have read to him, well wishing cards and messages.
Mike Lovell.
------ 
Steve, I was on that San Sebastion gig with Dave and we had a great time (as far as I can remember!) He's a lovely guy and both Ian Heslop and myself were disappointed not to see him when Mike Lovell's band played the Saville - little realising that he was in ill-health.
In the photo Dave is at the forefront sitting - I'm the tenor player standing directly behind.
Please pass on my sincerest best wishes to Dave.
Lance.

Dave Saville is a good all-rounder . Solid musically, great company and a good laugh . I wish  him great comfort and send my best wishes. Here attached is another pic from that trip. The band were largely topless due to the heat - Mercifully Solly remained fully clothed!
Regards
Andy Hudson.

I've had the pleasure of a few very enjoyable gigs with Dave together with Steve (Andrews) and Roy (Cansdale).
A lovely, very genuine person with a charming sense of humour and as a jazz musician, that innate lyricism and beauty of tone which makes for a special player.
I'm very sorry to hear Dave is unwell and send him my sincere best wishes.

How sad to hear about Dave. We really got on well together on that jaunt to Spain (Andy,- I remained fully clothed because I did'nt want to scare the horses!). Dave played excellent trumpet as always and it was always a pleasure to meet up with him in later years.

About this blog - contact details.

Bebop Spoken Here -- Here, being the north-east of England -- centred in the blues heartland of Newcastle and reaching down to the Tees Delta and looking upwards to the Land of the Kilt.
Not a very original title, I know; not even an accurate one as my taste, whilst centred around the music of Bird and Diz, extends in many directions and I listen to everything from King Oliver to Chick Corea and beyond. Not forgetting the Great American Songbook the contents of which has provided the inspiration for much great jazz and quality popular singing for round about a century.
The idea of this blog is for you to share your thoughts and pass on your comments on discs, gigs, jazz - music in general. If you've been to a gig/concert or heard a CD that knocked you sideways please share your views with us. Tell us about your favourites, your memories, your dislikes.
Lance (Who wishes it to be known that he is not responsible for postings other than his own and that he's not always responsible for them.)
Contact: lanceliddle@gmail.com I look forward to hearing from you.

Submissions for review

Whilst we appreciate the many emails, texts, messages and other communications we receive requesting album/gig reviews on BSH, regrettably, we are unable to reply to all of them other than those we are able to answer with a positive response.
Similarly, CDs received by post will only be considered if accompanied by sufficient background material.
Finally, bear in mind that this is a jazz-based site when submitting your album.
