Which band is this?

Bill Gallon sent me this photo taken some years ago at the Corner House, Newcastle.
The musicians I recognise are Bill Smith (ten); Alan Smith (tpt); Trevor Johnson (alt) and Marshall Walker (dms) but who is the pianist and who is the bassist and can anyone give me the name of the band and a possible date when the photo was taken?

This line up could be a band who were called "Friends of Jazz", who had a similar front line (Trevor Johnson, Bill Smith, and Alan Smith) the pianist is probably Ronnie Pipe, I think Marshall was on drums, I think Ian heslop was the bass player but not sure if that's Ian in the photo.
