Ronnie Scott Band at Wheatley Hill.

Alan Rudd supplied this photo of the Ronnie Scott 9 piece from circa 1952.
It was taken, I am informed, at the Embassy Ballroom, Wheatley Hill in Co. Durham. Wheatley Hill was, of course, the home town of altoist Derek Humble.
The unnamed members are Norman Stenfalt (pno); Lennie Bush (bs); Tony Crombie (dms).

Alan, Interesting, as I have a recording of almost this exact band, except Stan Tracy is on piano, and a 2nd trumpet who is Les Condon and the date is later, 1956, will put a couple of tracks up on Youtube.
