RIP Jim Perry

I received the sad news yesterday that Jim Perry passed away on March 19 - age 97. Jim was an ever present photographer on the Newcastle Jazz Scene in the 1960s and a display of his work was on show in the Corner House, Heaton for many years. More recently he had an exhibition at one of The Sage, Gateshead, Jazz Festivals.
To get an idea of the quality of his pictures visit his Flickr page.
Sadly missed - he was a legend.
Lance..
