Memories of George Evans.

Thought you might be interested in a couple of clips that were passed to my Dad (Roy Willis) by an old friend the other day...In the 80's, my Dad was part of the George Evans Big Band and used to meet up with him every week for a bit of a jam session in our front room (which I loved!) - as a result of it, George and my Dad were asked to play for Valentines Day on an arts programme on TV at the time called The Gallery. Here's a clip of it that you may be interested to share on your blog. I'm not sure of the exact year but my Dad certainly had more hair in those days!
My Funny Valentine.
The other clip I got on the same disc was of George Evans with the Arthur Mowat Big Band at the Corner House in the 80's too - lots of familiar faces to spot in the band too!
